Yes, but you did *not* call a subrequest, so it makes it like "cgi" and not 
"cmd". When you call a sub-request you get the previous data flushed.

I think this is very important, since if you do that, one doesn't have to 
learn a new thing (assuming that they already know filters) and they can use 
the streaming API instead of manipulating bucket brigades, which makes it much 
simpler to understand. And hey you don't even have to parse the args, just put 
them all in one bucket and let the user do the parsing.

That's unrelated to your work. It's a subtle problem with using -port select
