I am. Kom is elegant - very modular and configurable. What I like about 
Swazoo-Listener is that it's *not* modular and configurable. It's small 
and simple, and it was trivial to write a little adapter to pass 
requests off to Seaside.

This is perfect for running a Seaside app in a larger, Apache-hosted 
site, since Apache is plenty modular and configurable too, and you 
probably want it handling things like logging, static files etc. I use 
mod_proxy to map forward requests to Squeak.

Note that I don't know much about the performance of Swazoo. My site is 
low volume, so it doesn't matter much, and I haven't measured.
