I'm not sure I like this. I honestly don't see why you
need it. Someone said something in this thread about overhead.
Given that METHOD=GET, why can't $doc be processed "after the
question mark" along with $sstr and the rest? So you have to have
one "front end" script to invoke the others. So what? I don't
see that as a tremendous imposition.
