you're right, the port number is stored in a global variable; it's a relic 
from past architectures, it has to go.  your solution seems quite correct, 
but i think it should be more generalized; i'll look at it tonight.

in any case, if you want to have different responses according to the server 
instance, you should create different handler objects.  even if it's the same 
handler (CGILua in your case), use a different instance having different 
parameters for each server.

thanks for the feedback
