The only alternative is to write a small/silly mini http server, like 
in 1 class. But it has to be multi threaded to be interesting too. All 
this isn't very hard. If I find some time, I'll give it a try.

On the other hand, getting Comanche 6.2 from SqueakMap isn't that much 
work. I think the performance problem is mostly in plain HTTP 
processing - adding Seaside to the mix is not needed, and will indeed 
complicate things too much.
