yep, i've just read the LibHTTPD and it really seems easy to bind to Lua.  
maybe if i had known about it before, i wouldn't have started luahddpd ;-)

but now it's going very well, and the new 'threads under coroutines' library 
is a nice project on its own.

if i get some free time, and nobody does it first, i'd like to do at least a 
CGILua launcher for LibHTTPD.  even better, bind LibHTTPD as a lua library, 
and then write the main loop in Lua, with a CGILua handler... oh, well, it's 
not a difficult project but i have to keep focused with what i have in hands 

OTOH, as Luiz suggests, the HTTP part of a server isn't the most 
time-sensitive part, and writing it totally in Lua is very effective.
