PWS as a plain web-server

Yes, PWS can act as a plain web-server.  Just set up a ServerAction
(change ServerAction class>>#serverDirectory to be your root serving
directory first) and that will take care of things for you. 

On the other hand, PWS is not HTTP compliant, as far as I can tell.  Well
it's close, but you know.  I'm getting my hands on building a HTTP/1.1
compliant and Apache compatible web-server, with as many modules,
including the latest DAV module, with wiki-module as a plus. 

I don't expect it being publicly available in short.  I would also like to
use some help if anybody is interested.
