Fabien's mod_macro *is* listed in the site ...
with an update stamp of December 15, 1998.  I visited Fabien's site and
was impressed!  This is EXACTLY the kind of functionality I wish I had
at least 2 years ago.  I will be implementing it once I build my next
server.  It will be MUCH easier to keep up with the virtual domains.

Someone on the list said that any admin should already know how to write
Perl ... I have enough to keep up with to learn another (fully) at this
point.  I am learning Perl bit by bit as time allows and need should arise,
but I have been able to get by just fine without mastering it for 15 years
now (as an admin, designer, integrator and now web-host).

Thank you, Fabien, for the module ... seriously consider Martin's request
that you place it under the Apache License.

Merry Christmas all ...

[War] is instinctive.  But the instinct can be fought.  We're human
beings with the blood of a million savage years on our hands!  But we
can stop it.  We can admit that we're killers ... but we're not going
to kill today.  That's all it takes!  Knowing that we're not going to
kill today!
