I'd go so far as to say that its a good idea to write ONE web app
using CGI just to get a feel for it and to understand howmuch (or 
a framework gives you. But to use CGI as your normal web tool would
be a bit like using assembler when you could use C or using C
when you could use python... Its possible but just a lot more work.
