Simple Socket Question?

I'm trying to test the performance of Squeak for very simple http serving.

The test I want to perform is Squeak answering a simple request like
with nothing more than a simple string like 'Hello World!'.

I want it as basic, low overhead (as fast) as possible.

I've been looking at all kinds of http/response/request/Comanche*/... 
code all afternoon. I'm not currently a very good Squeaker and am not 
seeing how to do this.

I want to be able to
ab -n1000 -c5 http://localhost:8000/test

Flow and no-Flow options are fine.
I want to compare the results to what I get when I run the 'HelloWorld' 
Comanche demo.

Any pointers or guidance greatly appreciated.
