I think _maybe_ this is only a problem with the .cgi extension.  It
seems to work fine with the .pl extension.

Great! I was wondering what .swishcgi.conf did.  That could be good
indeed!  I could probably have the Win32 installer script write out a
working default config file!

Cool!  It works as-is.  And, .swishcgi.conf works with the default
swish.cgi (simply renamed to!

Oooh!  If I use the default (renamed swish.cgi) script
_without_ the .swishcgi.conf file it prompts me to download!
