[unisog] ACID not "2005" compliant

I realize this won't fix your problem with ACID, but the problem you are 
having now I ran into in 2002 and it was the straw that broke the camel's 
back.  I had too many problems with ACID(its lack of speed, its seperate 
'back' button, its use of PHP, its inability to handle multiple instances 
from a single browser, etc) so I rewrote my own using just python cgi 
scripts.  It is slightly scaled back from ACID(it lacks a decent graph 
feature, and a few other things) but it performs MUCH better.  On my 2Ghz 
database system, I've been able to have 40 million records in the database 
before the CGI's started timing out.

Its available at http://speakeasy.wpi.edu/placid/.

The nice thing about it is that since it only reads from the database, you 
can run it in tandem with ACID.  It will just ignore any ACID specific
