Zed,

Cool stuff. Is the intent that this enables an even more straightforward 
approach for running apps (such as a RoR app) than scgi under lighttpd? 
Ie., rather than scgi under lighttpd, just use mod_proxy?

Did you read this post, where Mark Mayo wonders why the newer frameworks 
haven't just been using an http interface (and instead have struggled 
with fcgi)?
