Okay, the new version of this handles GET & POSTs,
and can execute at least the "browse" command
and display the results in the Web window.


That's all I'll do for the time being.
I'm sure the code can be cleaner, etc.,
and probably lots of little bugs to figure
out when trying to get more complex commands
into it.

Here's a simple form I used to test this:

<form method=POST action="http://localhost:9999/forminput>
<p>User: <input type=text name=user>
<p>Password: <input type=text name=password>
<p> Name: <input type=text name=name>
<p> Command: <input type=text name=command>
<p> <input type=submit>
