Can you give an example of a platform that offers this that isn't built
as a web server module? (i.e., not ASP, SSIs, PHP; though I'm not even
entirely sure PHP offers this)
Really the problem is: we don't know how to implement what you're
asking for. *That* is why it is not in Webware. And no one is psyched
about putting an implementation in that can be misleading or
inaccurate, which is all we (outside of the web server) have available
to us. Unless there's a way of implementing this that we don't know
about. But, obviously, if there is such a way, we don't know about it.
