I'm betting this is either impossible 
or highly browser-dependent.

It's not entirely obvious to me that
a web server is needed to run a CGI
that is *on the local machine*. (As,
by analogy, we don't need to run a 
server just to look at local static
HTML files.)

Yet while it seems theoretically 
possible that a browser could do this,
I don't know whether any of them 
actually will.

Just to stay somewhat on-topic -- I 
have downloaded Webrick, I just haven't
yet understood it.  :)

So, a serverless CGI -- possible in
theory and practice, in theory only,
or just not happening?
