I understand and that is why I asked. I have no real problem doing whst
I have been doing so far. I just thought it could reduce the server load
a bit by having some of the simple data directly available.

I do understand your point of view and have seen it on the list before.
No problem, and sorry if I bothered the list with the request again. It
just "looked so easy" when I looked at the code.

I may just use mod_rewrite to have the get on a directory go elsewhere...
It just makes the mod_authz situation a bit harder to deal with.

Fully understand - I am a major "keep it simple, stupid" type of guy myself.

;-) The reason I asked was to try to improve the Insurrection system a bit.
