	Well, this means that there is no separation of name spaces --
 though you have improved the situation by giving the user a
 _choice_, which is always good.

	Would it not be a desirable goal to ultimately have the users
 using the /cgi-lib for system scripts, and /cgi-bin for local
 scripts, and have distinct name spaces?
