	You're right.  The buffering doesn't make the page any slower.  I
imagine that it doesn't slow the page down at all.  (And who knows...
Maybe it's faster.)  The problem is that the user requests the page and
they don't get a response at all.  Without buffering, the user would see
the beginnings of the page being displayed and would get the impression
things were running faster.  (Plus, on slow modem links, there would be
nothing apperently different.)  
	Although we probably should not be doing the page the way we are,
it works best when it is not buffered.  There should be an option to
either buffer or not as we requested.
