So, why not write a mod_perl module that will do just that (restrict user powers)? ISPs could then configure their servers to force using mod_perl powers via this module only. Users gain speed, performance, DB persistance, etc; ISPs gain control.

I'm still learning mod_perl, but from what I read, I think something like this is very possible. Most of the users don't need the full mod_perl horse power, just a small, but still significant, subset. Module like this could enable it, I believe, exporting some API and handlers users should then use instead of default ones, and controling that default stuff doesn't get called.

[abner]: yes. i am familiar with mysql but ignorant about how to get around the fact that placeholders can only represent single scalar values.
[abner]: my $sth = $dbh->prepare(' SELECT * FROM charge WHERE cpt = ?') or die "Couldn't prepare statement: " . $dbh->errstr;
[abner]: what if i want SELECT * FROM charge WHERE col1 = x and col2 = y?
[atcroft]: abner: So you are wanting to do something like my $sth = $dbh->prepare(' SELECT * FROM charge WHERE col1 = ? and col2 = ?;'); $sth->execute(' asdf', 'asdw');?
[atcroft]: (Full disclosure: I may have the idea right but small typographical errors, so please test any code I suggest. :) )
