Pure cgi is too slow.  "Active Scripting" means ASP, yes?
I need something that will do cgi scripts (a lot of which I already
and can modify but don't want to rewrite extensively, partly because
of time issues, partly because I want to preserve some degree of
portability back to a unix environment.).   I want something that does
for IIS what mod_python does for apache.  Fastcgi looked scary even
on unix plaforms, seems like an act of desperation on Windows,
