Hi,

I'm afraid that total independence of the webservers is not possible
yet. WEBrick is fast enough for development and small servers, and
that's it. :-)

Maybe someone could rewrite WEBrick in RubyC. :-)

YARV is interesing with the general performance improvements. But how
long till we can run WEBrick on it? :-)

When I think about serving large binary files with WEBrick, I soon
realize that we really need webservers.

Cheers,
Joao
