... and Zope's old mod_pcgi, and mod_lisp, and doubtless a mod_ruby or 
two; this wheel has been reinvented many, many times.  Someone should 
write a specification for the communication protocol (a protocol 
simpler than FastCGI, which has a specification but is too complicated)

site content, code -- live under /www, and changing that assumption 
would be messy.)
