right, i had thought about that a lot... but i'd like to keep the http-parsing 
code.  and it would be better if my launcher could still launch standard 
luaPages

me too, but in the end would be easier

my main target is for internal app servers on SMEs, usually most of the users 
have a window open, but only a few are really using the app at any moment.  
that's why i'd like to keep it lightweight and simple.

maybe i should forget about http, and write a generic client on javascript, 
that simply opens a socket to a Lua app server.  every user would get a 
stable connection, and the state would be tied to that.  (with a common 
environment for shared data)

but i'm even more ignorant in javascript than in Lua... can it do generic 
sockets???
