Very nice Javier!

I also have been working on a lua httpd!

Mine lacks the elegance of yours, but I'm trying to implement mine
strictly with coroutines, where a socket send or receive will yield
the thread to a scheduler that's heart is a select statement (blocking
on the very sends/receives in each thread).

Lua scripts started from the server would be sandboxed to prevent
crashing/hanging where possible, and provided a send() and receive()
function that "plays nice" with the scheduler.

My code is monsterously nasty right now, but I'm hoping I can borrow
(steal) some ideas in your code and release it when it looks better.

Let me know your thoughts...

Person who say it cannot be done should not interrupt person doing it.
