I'm highly interested in your code, as I might do something
quite similar for a client soon.
I missed a part of this thread though, hence my question :
is your xTalk script running as a client app or as a CGI script
on a server responding to requests sent from a browser ?

In the project I might work on next month, various tasks will need
to be done, including on-the-fly generation of PDF docs; that's why
I'd prefer to use MC as CGI rather than Perl of PHP (as such onthefly
generation of docs is easier - by several orders of magnitude - to do
with xTalk).
End users will also have the possibility to deposit some money (via their
CC#) on a personal account, for which I'd like to provide some online
management tools (mostly : history). Obviously, such online tools
require secure connections via SSL / https, and I guess there's no
hope to manage such process from MC/Rev as CGI...
