Subject RE: Setting a handler within a configuration directive

Contract, as in the piece of paper you get someone to sign in order to
license your software.  It would spell out the responsibilities of both
parties for support, penalties for violating those terms (ex. running at
levels above the paid entitlement), etc.  I mean the exact same meaning
of the word as used in higher-end desktop software.  EULAs don't really
hold much legal standing, specifically because they are NOT contracts.
You need a signature of some kind from both you and your customer
agreeing to the terms.

Rick,

What do you mean by contract?  I am coming from a desktop application
development background, so there are some basics about web development
that I simply don't know;)
