I fail to see why using C is going to require that. Who said we planned
to use CGI for our C program? Did you Dave?
 Python, Lisp, Scheme, maybe even prolog. OK, I might even
consider C. But, I'd avoid perl.
 Probably not terribly practical, but why not?
 Or not. Sometimes I just dash out small things in perl. But, if
this was a fairly major project, which is sort of is, but might not need
to be, I certainly wouldn't use perl.
 And this time I mean it.
