Hmm. I've done that a couple of times, but generally to do something like
<!--#exec cmd="something $PATH_INFO" -->. I've never seen $ used in exec
that didn't refer to a non-CGI variable. CGI vars should still work as
expected, they'll just be expanded by xssi rather than the shell, yes?

Still +1. (and, in case it's unclear, I'm +1ing replacing mod_include with
the contents of mod_xinclude, not just adding the file as an option).
