Yes, I'd love to see some experience reports about the light web
servers. And anyone who's tried the Amazon or CouchDB or other
non-traditional storage bindings,
Also, HAppS is making a serious push these days, in particular, via
http://lhc.seize.it/ (the lhc homepage is gitit running in happs)
And HAppS has become far more available since stabilising.
Maybe it is time for a "Haskell for the Web" collection.
