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.
