I just released a barely working version a my perl
I thought I get it out early before I get any patches for any old version.
No point in rewriteen Apache in perl, Apache/mod_perl works like a clockwork IMHO. Better to make a small fast testbed for more specialised proposes.
It is based on libwww-perl by Gisle Aas and Net::Daemon/HTML::EP by Jochen Wiedmann. Designed to serve paged with embedded perl.
Plans are there for WebDAV support and I am pondering what can be done with PostgreSQL ORDBMS and XML-storage. Hmmm ....
Anyway get it from kirra.net if ou want to have a look.
