Thanks, Ville. On a related note, I have been wondering for a long  
time why our httpd snippet had:

# Tell httpd that "check" is a CGI script.
<Location "/w3c-validator/check">
   SetHandler            cgi-script
</Location>

And not just:
ScriptAlias /w3c-validator/check "/usr/share/w3c-markup-validator/ 
httpd/cgi-bin/check"

Given that w3c-validator/ is an alias to the htdocs directory, it  
means one has to copy the check script into the htdocs, for which I  
can't find a good reason. Was that to make it mod_perl friendly? I  
can't see why.

Anyway, unless anyone objects, I think I will use the scriptalias  
directive instead of the SetHandler in what we will ship for 0.7.0.

Any thought on this?
