ouch...  If this works in 1.3, we probably should fix it.

Is this even limited to CGIs?  I would hope such a CGI could be ported to the
Apache module API without loosing functionality.

I vaguely recall a discussion about supporting a module/CGI which sends an
initial message to the client before doing a slow database query, perhaps when
filters were being designed.  Obviously such a thing won't work as desired now.
