This article makes a great deal of sense. I notice that Netscape LiveWire is not mentioned as a possible solution. Based on my one-year attempt to get LiveWire to work, I would not argue for including them.
In fact, I would think that Netscape should give away their server source code--while they still can. If enough people have access to the source code to fix it, they may be able to compete in the business that you describe.
