As Ryan pointed out with his very astute example, placing the Rebol
binary in the cgi-bin does two things:
1) it allows your Rebol executable to be used in any url on your server
2) it allows *anyone* to do 1)
Due the the nature of Rebol being able to 'do remote scripts, someone
could quite easily write a script to send files/passwords/do system
commands on YOUR server.
This is Not A Good Thing(tm)
