How have you come to this determination, and what are the SSI calls you 
are making? I think the SSI exec command is what you want, not SSI 
include command.

I've never used SSI and CGI together, but my old O'Reilly CGI 
programming book has an example showing this form of the command: 
<!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/random.pl"-->

There is no reason it wouldn't work with a Rev script instead of a Perl 
script.

BTW I seem to remember SSI exec might often be disabled in web server 
configurations for security reasons. Not sure about that though.
