Hi Jason,

	I think you can avoid apache by replacing it with a light http
server, but if what you want is homogeneity that do not count. You may
starting to evaluate other http servers for smalltalk to see if they meet
your needs and how much work or not they will guarantee to give to you. 

	I think if you search this list there are some benchmarks comparing
comanche, swazoo and apache for file serving.

	There are some cons for homogeneity in this puntual regard like
fault tolerance, security, robustness, etc. and as an http can be
pragmatically seen just as a file server for Seaside solutoins I would think
large and twice or more times before seting up in production an st http
server for everything. But beside that the *big* con of homogeneity in that
point cames to you when scalability arrives. And, as far as I know, is an
uncontroversial one.
