the reason why I asked for CGI was that I potentially
will hold a course about python/webprogramming (very
newbie level) and was thinking about an easy way to set
up an environment of such. Previously I was thinking
about twisted, but did not yet investigate about the
CGI capabilities there. Why CGI at all: Simple because
if I introduce some simple web-applications in the course
the attendees could take them and most easily transport
them to a common web-hoster. I know about CGIHTTPServer
and might end up with it.
