I was aware of the subrequest function and it works for a single
request.  For example, the cgi app I would like to get working is a web
calendar.  The first request to it shows it's login page nicely in my
template.  When I login the calendar then shows up on it's own page
without my template.  The login request goes to the cgi-bin which is
outside of my Embperl::Object handler.
