That isn't the same as what is being talked about here with unmodified
CGI scripts running under mod_wsgi. That program you are talking about
is more in line with what Ian was talking about, but would still
require the CGI script to be converted to work with SCGI directly or
WSGI and then use a SCGI/WSGI adapter.
