it did got here, but found me at a busy time, and i think andre is still 
somewhere else.

there's no 'config dir'; the start() function in server.lua does a 
pcall(require, "xavante.config").  you can put any lua code in 
xavante/config.lua, for example, it can load another config file anywhere 
else you want.

and for creating several instances, you can choose between running several 
separate processes, or calling xavante.HTTP{} several times:

    server = {host = "*", port = 4080},
    defaultHost = {
    	rules = rulesetA

    server = {host = "*", port = 4082},
    defaultHost = {
    	rules = rulesetB
    ["web2"] = {
	rules = rulesetC

here, we have three 'instances' one in port 4080, and two in port 4082.  in 
the second port, it uses 'virtual servers' to discriminate, based on the 
server name used in the queries.

BTW, i don't like the 'setwebdir' methodology.  all it does is define what 
xavante.webdir() will return, so it can be used in the config file; but it's 
(for me, at least) just as easy to set baseDir in the rulesets.
