There is a reason for that and I question whether the CGI naysayers
were ever wrong. The arrival of mod_perl and mod_php provide two
distinct development platforms which do not need to fork a new
process for each instance of the script execution.
I am not aware of many sysadmins who allow universal CGI access without
mod_perl, and a cgi-wrapper.
For my money, I will stick with these 'next-generation' web technologies.
