Proxy is a misleading word is this content. I did not mean an HTTP  
proxy I meant a HTTP server that can foward HTTP requests on to  
something else with out the knowledge of the web browser. My concern  
is the performance of Comanche while performing this task and how it  
might to compare to Apache doing the same task.

My thought was to centralize the incoming requests into one image.  
That image would then be responsible for starting up an image,  
forwarding a request, shutting down an image, load balancing, and  
maintaining and checking status of the images. Doing it in Squeak  
would keep it cross platform and would also follow the spirit of  
eating your own dog food.
