Subject sorry to keep banging my head on this, but...

Why is this not allowed?

  <!--#exec cgi="foo.cgi?query" -->

or

  <!--#exec cgi="foo.cgi/bar" -->

I remember mumblings about NCSA compatibility, but bugwards compatibility as
well?

The only complicating factor I'm aware of is that the query string *can* get to
the CGI script if it's applied to the HTML file which contains the SSI itself:

  http://foo/bar.html?query

Supporting that is still possible; just make a query string on the CGI script
take precedence if both exist.  That shouldn't break any system which relies
upon that behavior.  

Comments?
