Well, I have so far been successful with simple things like the ping and
telnet client examples that come with PythonD. The telnet client uses
select() to determine if the host is still sending data or not (fork is NOT
available on PythonD).

Like I mentioned before, the 4suite XSLT processing works under DOS, so we
are sure so far of that much... I am asking this group for their analysis of
these two server packages, as maybe it will help me reach a descision which
one we should persue...
