I suspect that most CGI scripts that didn't use any abstraction for HTTP
responses suffer from this potential problem.  I've been using one
abstraction or another for quite awhile now, but I still have a few CGI
scripts laying around that still use print to emit headers and bodies of
HTTP responses.
