+1, it's running on Hyperreal and all appears well, tested with regular
CGI, CGI designed to output every 2 seconds, and with nph-cgi.

I just noticed - if a script is running, and it's chown'd due to suexec to
a UID other than the main server, then the server can't kill it when the
client quits the connection before the script is done.  Interesting problem
- should the server fire up suexec with sh kill?  :)
