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?
