They could always use NCSA httpd. I hear they have it.

When people ask for this on the bugs mail, I point them at mod_suicide, for
the reason given by others.

If you can implement this in such a way that people are forced to read
a description of the dangers before they can enable it then none of us
can argue for its exclusion.

Anyway, what can't your engineers write as CGI that makes them so hungry
for SSI parsing ? .. or are they lazy ?
