I don't know why it isn't done this way, and maybe there is a good reason, but I would have thought it would be a good idea to have a standard set of error pages for everyone in a special directory, and a symlink pointing at it: that way you can update them all at the seame time if necessary.
The same is true for the default cgi scripts - I'd rather have a link to the standard ones than a copy of the standard ones.
Maybe there is a reason why symlinks won't do.
