I'm afraid not. With the hosted-apache setups I've used you can't even
do a PUT or DELETE to a cgi (AFAIK apache has to be specifically
configured to let this through).

E.g.

telnet www.phildawes.net 80
MGET /hello HTTP/1.0
Host: www.phildawes.net


..returns a 403. 

(Where as GET and POST return the results of the CGI)

Cheers,

Phil
