Ultra 5 running Solaris 2.6.
If AddHandler defines a handler for a file extension for the whole server,
and an Action is also defined for the same extension locally (via .htaccess), 
then the handler overrides the action.

In srm.conf, to make entire site's .html files SSI parsed:

AddHandler server-parsed .html

In a particular directory's .htaccess, for particular parsing of .html files by a script:

AddType text/mytype .html
Action text/mytype /script/to/parse/with.cgi
 - Have Action's override handlers.
 - Have Actions supplement handlers (ie; handle it, then pass on the output to the action)
 - Allow Handlers to be easily disabled (RemoveHandler ??)
 - Clearly document AddHandler versus Actions, caveats, adaptations, etc ...
