The SCGI protocol is a replacement for the Common Gateway Interface
(CGI) protocol. It is similar to FastCGI but is designed to be
easier to implement. The scgi package includes implementions of the
SCGI protocol for Python, Apache 1 and Apache 2.
The highlights of this release:
* Improve portability of the passfd module (solves at least one
bug on AMD64 machines).
* Fix a mod_scgi bug that caused a segfault (due to a NULL pointer
dereference) with certain configurations. Thanks to Thomas Yandell
for helping track down the bug.
* Don't send duplicated headers for SCRIPT_NAME and HTTPS.
* Allow SCGIServer to use an open socket if provided by the calling
procedure. The existing serve() method remains the same.
