Call me a cynic :-) - but I'm an optimistic cynic ....

I know *absolutely* nothing about the workaround or what's involved - 
but it's easy to believe there are a myriad of special config needs. 
However, I'm a cynic so I'll admit that I don't care about all the many 
hundreds or thousands of them - I only care about two; the two ISPs I 
use for my own sites.

That's not *simply* selfishness, because I believe there are perhaps 
only a handful of ISPs who provide a high percentage of the Livecode 
(shared) servers found in the real world, and I'm optimistic to think 
that solving this problem for those cases would be enough to make a 
difference, and specifically would help anyone coming to LC server as a 
new user.

Google tells me (in a 30 second search, limited to the first two pages) 
that only on-rev (aka Livecode hosting) and HostM specifically advertise 
themselves for Livecode servers. Maybe those two would be a good start ?

(and by coincidence are the two I care about :-) :-)
