Sorry about that.  I was working with someone on that one, but,
there was no completion.

That is true, once you've been absorbed into the Scheme continuum.
But imagine that you were someone coming in from the outside: from
PHP perhaps.

I don't want to dissuade you from doing something big, but, the
actual scope of the problem as described is quite small: make a CGI
script that (a) reads its own PATH_INFO (b) finds a template by
that name (c) sends it through eguile, and (d) returns it
to the client.

Its a bad approach in practice because there is no compilation
of the templates.
