Actually, I'm kind of surprised that more people don't have their web
pages on filesystems mounted read only, or on devices physically write
protected. I know this isn't possible for all pages, and that a cgi-bin
directory wouldn't work in this configuration, but for the bulk of pages
that are just data being served it seems like an obvious thing to do.
