I'd like to know too, although the obvious argument is backward
compatibility for people accustomed to ZServer as Zope migrates away from it.
I've personally never felt a need to feed this data back to the web server,
probably because I'm so used to using FastCGI, which has no *way* to feed
it back to the web server, and I prefer to look at the application's
logs. But Zope is a content management system, not an "application" in the
sense I mean, so the same use cases don't necessarily apply.
