We (Can-Host Networks) decided that we would not offer Frontpage Extensions on our future servers, for a few reasons:
- We have it right now, and it work correctly 1 time on 2... and it can'T really be debugged because you have no ideas what is wrong
- It is a potential privacy/security threat, as it sets all file permissions to 'nobody' (for some stupid reasons), thus anyone with a malicious perl script can read / modify / delete a file controled by another front page user.
- After our initial experience, we noticed that about 0.1% of our customers are using Frontpage (requested it), and out of these, there are some that requested it because it was marked as 'free' but had no clues on what it was
Bottom line... you do what you want, but I don't recommend it.
