"magic pixie dust" :-)

cgi-bin ( ../httpd/cgi-bin ) is always outside of DocumentRoot
( home/httpd/html )
	- you need to configure cgi-bin options to allow it to run
	as cgi executables

you need at least one default   foo.html web page
	- all subsquent web pages can be autogeneated per user
	options/config .. each link on foo.html is a
	cgi-bin/dosomething?...

using symlinks for cgi-bin executables is good and bad..

sprinkling more pixie dust on the universal adaptor
