Not that it adds much to this discussion, but to set the record straight,
the company I used to work for (Process Software) wrote ISAPI 1.0, spec
and all. MS got involved at the end and as a result, everyone knows it as
Microsoft's ISAPI. Sigh. But Murali did most of it, including getting it into
Purveyor (our WWW server).
