Since there are a lot of modifications of HWS around now, it seems to be
worthwhile to combine the efforts. E.g. I adapted the HWS adaption
provided by WASH
    for my needs. For instance in Request.hs I removed the call to
'Network.URI.unEscapeString' (which is 'deHex' in fptools/HWS/Request.hs,
but 'deHex' is 'id') because that affects interpretation of CGI
parameters. I also think that this package needs some cleanup and Cabal.

What about a darcs repository at http://darcs.haskell.org/ ?
