I don't think that is a particularly good idea, because there are
literally hundreds of different cgi languages/libraries out there, and we
don't want to start naming all of them.  The two that are already listed
there happen to be very old and popular and well-respected.  (No insult
intended to Ch, but it is certainly not nearly as widely used.)  If
instead you wanted to provide a link to a directory (dmoz/yahoo/whatever)
where a bunch of cgi libraries were listed, that could be better.
