That's one week: BaseHTTPServer is HTTP/1.0-based if I recall correctly, so 
whipping up support shouldn't take too long.  I have a draft WSGIServer 
based on the December draft of the PEP, so it'd just have to be beefed 
up.  Also, I think a CGI-based gateway (with some kind of error handling) 
should go in, and perhaps the utility functions we discussed previously.

Documentation is an issue, though, and perhaps tests as well.  Also, I sent 
in the PEP the day before yesterday and still don't have a PEP number.  So 
getting community support for the PEP in the time remaining might be tough,
