Yes. And while we are at it, how about one that uses all available
processor cores; one lua_State per core.

I would prefer a server framework that does nothing but serve dynamic
content. Static material goes in the CDN (except for tiny bits of HTML
and Javascript which get cached in memory).

I don't even want it do do any logging by default; I want logging to
be done in an application specific way, for instance, I may send log
messages to another application on another server.

I'm working on it. I just completed, and am testing, a binding to Ryan
Dahl's http-parser, which is based on Zed Shaw's Mongrel.

As noted above, decent compliance to the HTTP specification is not
altogether uncomplicated ;)
