No, what you are thinking of is CGIAdapter, which is used by WebKit.cgi
to connect with AppServer. I would guess that *most* people use that,
until they figure out mod_webkit. It will definitely not go away.

mod_webkit works well. I am still trying to figure out fcgi.
CGIWrapper is actually a precursor to what we know as WebKit. AFAICT it
is totally obsolete. (The reason I even asked is because I didn't
clearly understand what it was. If I had understood, I would have just
sent a private message to Chuck and not bothered the list?)
Am I right Chuck? Should it be removed from the distribution to avoid
silly questions like mine?
