I've installed web.sql and played around with it, but we're not using it
for any real applications yet, though we do plan to. The Netscape API
(NSAPI) version of web.sql seems to be worth using. The NSAPI version
actually pre-loads perl and the sybperl libraries. This means that you
don't have to wait for perl and libraries to load for each hit on a
Web.sql also lets you easily embed perl code in the middle of your HTML
