Bad example; quick-and-dirty CGI scripts may get away with using
print.  However, if you want decent error handling, such as not
outputting a partial page if you get an exception, you need to either
not use print, or replace sys.stdout to trap output from 'print' and
only send the output once it's all been generated.
