Subject Re: [Patch]:Move SSI "exec" directive support from mod_include to mod_cgi(d).

Yes, it does apply here.  Take this example:

both mod_include and mod_cgi are shared objects.  All of a sudden,
mod_include MUST be loaded before mod_cgi.

As for the fact that mod_include is a default module, so is mod_cgi.  It
doesn't matter.  This is a bug that we can't release a beta with.  As
things stand now, the server works, even if we would like to see some
of the organization change.

Why is this an issue?  We are hoping to get the beta out the door VERY
quickly, so delaying the patch until we release the beta really shouldn't
be a big deal.
