And nginx is even faster, simpler, leaner, meaner than lighttpd :)

So the cool Ruby kids say! Personally Lighty has been a
winner for the sites I manage. I also like that you can
embed Lua scripts in the server.

I do realize that this argument is going against nearly 15 years of Common Gateway Interface indoctrination :D

I've argued similar things before in other forums (that
apps in future might embed their own HTTP handling). But
I didn't see it being a case of using a pure Lua, pure
Ruby, pure Python etc solution. Rather I expected folk
would settle on some fast, easily wrapped C library.
One that looks nice is Libebb[1].

But as I pointed out, (F|S)CGI isn't a performance tool.
Its purpose is to abstract the web server away from the
application. For a lot of people, that matters.

I am happy in this case to agree to (partly) disagree.
