In part I want to scrape together the right process management pieces 
and whatnot, so I can actually put up a demo that works and stays up. 
I'm afraid I've had too many fragile demos so now I go with conservative

figure out how this should all plug together beyond just the HTTP/HTML 
parts (which is another separate but highly related piece).
