I'm not sure but you may have to read from merge to allow the process
to complete. You might want to use os.system() or one of the
subprocess replacements:

if your webserver allows multiple simultaneous connections, and you
are going to serve merge.wav to a client, make sure you use different
names for each connection so they don't collide.
