Because I have no interest in using ZServer or writing an HTTP server
when Apache already exists and is very flexible.  Do I have to
implement HTTP/1.1 pipelining?  Will I have to reinvent my own crappy
versions of Apache modules such as mod_rewrite, mod_speling,
mod_autoindex, or mod_alias?  Apache gives me more flexibility with
less effort than either ZServer or my own custom server would.

So far it seems to be reasonably efficient, and certainly fast enough
for our purposes.
