Or 'loses' even...  This is by no means a complete solution to the problem
at hand, but if run interactively, there should be a tty available to suexec;
if run from apache, it shouldn't...  Of course, there's ways around that
too....  Hm.  Regardless, suexec probably shouldn't be executable from the
command line.
