[Seaside] Blackfoot + Cherokee + Seaside = better performance

Just wanted to share a bit of info about Blackfoot (SimpleCGI for
Squeak/Seaside, available on SM).
I started hacking again a few days back to get file upload (multipart
forms) working for Seaside (not yet fixed, but I am almost there).
Then I benched it a bit. I used latest Cherokee (very fast webserver)
and the Pharo Seaside image + Blackfoot. One thing is VERY clear:
Blackfoot behaves MUCH better under pressure. When I stomped on it with
ab then KomHttpServer started failing connections and also giving VERY
slow responses to some clients (24 sec).
Blackfoot never failed and worst case answer was around 1 sec.
Anyway, I can do more detailed benchmarks later on but first I should
get multipart forms working. Also, please reply for other "details" you
think I need to test.
