I am indeed afraid of something (for good reason), but it is NOT Apache.
 Let's use an analogy.  Bolts are easy to use, right?  What could be
easier than screwing them into a hole?  But imagine a bolt that is
inserted only finger tight, followed by a distraction, and never
properly tightened??  Of course, I wasn't stupid enough to fall for that
one, and *certainly* not today while fixing my lawn mower<g>, but it
could happen...

I guess I can understand that desire, I just don't agree because it's
on the assumption that "installing and maintaining something as powerful
Apache" is some huge task to be avoided, but it's trivial and not worth
effort to avoid.  Doing complex things with apache can be a bear, but
simple thing is simple.  I know what you want to do, I just feel your
resistance to Apache is more rooted in not wanting to leave Smalltalk or
a tool that isn't already in your toolbox.
