right, of course; what i'll try is something like this:

function setupurlfunctions ()
 local uf = {}

 function lfhandler (path)
  local f = uf [path]
  if (f) then
   return f()

 function registerurlfunction (path, f)
  uf [path] = f

 cgilua.addscripthandler ("lf", lfhandler)

in other words, a very simple extension handler would do the url=>function 

maybe i would modify the fastcgi launcher to get rid of the venv() for each 
call... i still feel that it negates most of the advantages of the persistent 
state of fastCGI

the new code is much cleaner and more readable (i had read only alpha3 before 
the beta), it really invites to experiment
