Hi all

My AccInABox project runs an http server. Previously I used the 
wsgiserver, but I have now switched to asyncio.

I tried to use the wsgi interface, but I have a particular requirement and 
found that wsgi got in the way, so I dropped it and now handle all requests 

Now the question arises, what if someone wants to run my program under 
Apache or nginx? I have had some feedback from a sysadmin, whose main 
concern is how to deploy my program, which is something I have not given 
serious thought to.

If the answer is that I really should be using wsgi, I will explain my 
specific requirement in more detail, and see if anyone can suggest a 

But at this stage, I would like to discuss whether it is possible to avoid 
using wsgi. Should I be looking at FastCGI, or is that now considered 

I would appreciate any pointers or links to get me started.
