BTW, a bit ago, I commited some tenative Win32-packaging instructions
to I never saw any comment on
those.... Since at the moment, it looks like you (Ben) will be stuck
doing that for 1.3b1, perhaps you could take a moment and review
those, so we can figure out exactly what needs to be done?

Possibly... I'm still disturbed that there's no way to use
script-based CGIs that don't use # as a comment character, since the
current code emulates Unix in this manner. Isn't it possible (as in
other servers, like IIS) to use the Windows file system stuff to
associate extensions with programs, and launch them that way?
