	The problem is that I have an 'untrusted' user base I everything
has to be implemented by the parent process or by the system itself. I
have no way of making the users behave themselves (in fact, they misbehave
for the fun of it) with good cgi programming.

	For example, today an user executed the C program I posted before
and almost made the machine stop. Thanks God I was logged and I could kill
all the processes. I took the ExecCGI permission from the user and told
him a couple of things...
