To add to this, I never found the CGI functionality useful. Why would I
do that and not a real redirect? If there's links they'll be broken,
because the client and the resource won't agree on what the real request
URL was. If the script/app is the consumer, the Location header stuff
doesn't work -- you don't get back the response. So it doesn't work for
web service style internal requests. If it's something like
authentication, that doesn't work either -- you are giving a request
path back, which anyone could access, and you haven't added any
information to it to specifically permit access (unless there's
something in the environment that makes the subrequest clear; I never
looked closely enough, nor is it specified).
