The SCGI protocol is a replacement for the Common Gateway Interface
(CGI) protocol.  It is similar to FastCGI but is designed to be

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

* 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.
