The question is related though, because what you describe indicates
that thttp would set SCRIPT_NAME to "/mailman/listinfo/somelist" and
PATH_INFO to "" /if/ it could find the script.

It seems to me that thttp's behavior would require you to have a
listinfo subdirectory that contains a somelist script (IIUC), and that
would make it impossible to support cgi's with both /mailman/listinfo
and /mailman/listinfo/somelist (as Mailman uses to give a site-wide
overview of lists, and specific list information).

Seems pretty disfunctional to me. ;)
