	I double-checked everything, and it turns out that indeed
I needed to put a .htaccess file in /cgi-bin, <Limit> PUT there,
make sure .htaccess was readable, and make sure that allowing overrides
was OK for /cgi-bin.
	After that, everything worked! Now I am going to town, yay,
long live apache!

	Ah, now I understand.
	Those writing books on Apache (I know you're out there :) might
want to include these little tips for those making this kind of stuff.
	Case solved,
