:Something that I thought of while talking with Dylan Reinhold:  The
:DragonFly site is somewhat overengineered at this point.  The pages are
:created dynamically, but the only direct benefit now is highlighting the
:current page.  
:Eventually  there will be more pages than can be displayed in a side menu,
:so unless there's an upcoming need for program output on every page, it may
:be better to use apache server side includes instead and stick to CGI when
:the page demands it.  Opinions?  Matt, would you be willing to turn on
:server side includes?

    Server side includes aren't really powerful enough, nor do I really
    want to add complexity to our pages.  The CGI overhead is basically
    nil and it gives us the ability to chang the framing without having to 
    mess with the pages.  If we needed to, we could easily implement additional
    $variable based dynamic content.
