Can you expand on this a bit more, what are the response status?  I
have no problem looking them up to learn about them, I just need to
know what to look up;)

You are correct, I am very much at home in C/C++.  Other then C#,
other languages are much less comfortable for me;)  It looks like
there is a lot of infrastructure code that is needed when implementing
an apache handler module and a whole new "framework" to learn.  Is the
work worth it compared to CGI (maybe FastCGI) for what I am doing?
That is the million dollar question I am seeking;)
