There's nothing that unfair about benchmarking SimpleHTTPServer.
paste.httpserver uses SimpleHTTPServer, and it's not as fast as
CherryPy (which is still pure Python and I think not entirely unlike
SimpleHTTPServer, just more streamlined), but it's not terrible.  It's
certainly nothing like WEBrick.
