I have been looking into CGIHTTPServer.py a little. I think, it should
be possible to modify run_cgi() (in a subclass) in the following way:
- Decode self.cgi_info as shown additionally use cgi.parse_qs
to write results (directory with CGI arguments) into
- fork the process (same as original run_cgi())
- Associate stdin with self.rfile and stdout with self.wfile
- Instead of running a script with name 'scriptname'
call a method on 'self' called 'scriptname'.
- The method called can access self.cgi_args to access
the data passed and it can simply write to stdout
