right, but it's so many levels of abstraction... and XML for parameters... a 
lot of bloat for my taste. what i propose is: just before checking for the 
luaPage file, check a table, if there's a function associated with that URL, 
call it instead of loading the luaPage.  if there's not, load it.  simple, 
lightweight, fast.

not one process per user, just a coroutine.  the 'getevent()' function would 
do a yield, and the RPC would take a session id and retrieve the coroutine to 
resume.

maybe the 'stable' persistence could take a timeout, to destroy stale 
sessions...
