True, my generation grew up with CGI. As a matter of fact, I co-authored
one of the very first books on using Perl on the web in 1995.

So apparently your main point against is that the ancient
knowledge of the CGI protocol is lost?

If I'd want a trivial web app that shows me yesterday's SinFest comic,
I'd use and 10-20 lines of Perl code. It would work on every web
host that has Perl. What would be your approach?
