I don't think that will solve the problem: here's a cut-and-paste from
python 2.2 module reference:

"11.17 CGIHTTPServer -- CGI-capable HTTP request handler 

Availability: Unix.

The CGIHTTPServer module defines a request-handler class, interface
compatible with BaseHTTPServer.BaseHTTPRequestHandler and inherits
behavior from SimpleHTTPServer.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler but can also
run CGI scripts.

Note: This module is Unix dependent since it creates the CGI process
using os.fork() and os.exec()."
