I don't believe it's an Apache module. I'm not exactly sure what it is,
but when I asked if it was a module per se I was told it was not.
That's a good thing, IMO, since it would be next to impossible to
install it on a shared host if it were.

It would be nice to keep it current, but there's little in v4.0 that's
not in v3.5 that would be useful in a CGI.
But it sure would be nice if RunRev put a link to the v3.5 Linux runtime
engine on their site so folks could find it easier.
