Returns from CGI scripts work fine (that was the first option I gave). The
problem is when the CGI script does a redirect to another document, and
that document is cached. Unfortunately, when you are writing generic order
forms, it's a lot easier to redirect to someone's order form than it is to
try and read it off of the local disk (who knows where in the file
structure) and print it out that way.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
