OTOH, as Luiz suggests, the HTTP part of a server isn't the most

Well, yes and no. LuaSocket does the blunt of the work thanks to its select() function. With something like LibHTTPD, you even don't need a Lua dispatcher of any kind as the embedding library takes care of the run loop itself. Less is more :)

In any case, I'm looking forward to play with luahddpd and Xavante. Once I figure out how to use LuaSocket with 5.1 that is :P
