	Okay, here's that update that I promised.  The script is coming
	along nicely, and I expect to have something that is at least 
	useable and helpful by the first part of tomorrow.  At this 
	point, the script gets all of the information from Netsite's
	magnus.conf, and most of the information out of the obj.conf.
	As soon as I get finished writing the routines to get the 
	access control information out of the obj.conf file, the 
	script should be ready to go.  I'm sure it'll change once
	other people start using it, since it's hard to prepare for
	the 'generic' case when I only have a small sampling of the
	configuration file directives, and I doubt that Netscrape 
	would send me documentation on them to aid in converting 
	people to Apache.  Call it a hunch. :-)

	At any rate, I'll post my source to the list for comments some time
