	I was wondering if there was an apache module or perhaps some obscure
	directive that would cause a CGI script or a handler or whatever
	the user's Oracle process would be considered to "Tee" out the output
	sent back to Apache HTTPD for delivery to the browser and dump that
	output into a file.   So we could see what headers if any are
	generated by that process.
