Right. That's what I meant: "Everything except the part where the data
store writes the data out to the stream." The equivilent in A1 of the
'handler' phase, I imagine.

Interesting idea. It could provide another way to handle the CGI/file
problem - rather than seperating out the data store functions as described
above, the CGI data store could just inherit from the file data store, and
override the content delivery (handler) method.
