In fact, my guess is that the *simplest* way to get Seaside running on 
another Smalltalk might be to port Blackfoot, my SimpleCGI/SCGI 
implementation available on SM. It is very small and even though it is 
not yet fully tested, it does work, modulo special cases - for example, 
haven't tested file uploads yet etc.

Blackfoot has been tested with Cherokee and a modified/fixed Nginx. 
Should work with Apache or Lighttpd with SCGI too I guess.

...and Blackfoot. :)
