You haven't described the problem you want to solve in very much detail.  I
can't tell, for example, why I shouldn't recommend that you use Apache instead
of CherryPy or Twisted or anything else.  Apache has a huge user community,
lots of documentation, and lots of developers fixing its bugs and making it
work well.  What are you trying to do that would make Apache a bad choice?
