That's how the Happstack model works.

Nothing stops you from proxying through Apache, for example. That's
how the Darcs wiki does it - Gitit listens on and
Apache forwards from wiki.darcs.net:80. Or something like that.

Well, I've been pushing for any Gitit site backed by a darcs repo to
be called a 'darcsit', which is very Google-search-friendly a name.

Well, what are you looking for? Gitit's obviously on Hackage, and it
links to the homepage (such as it is) on Github; there are a number of
running examples besides John's site, such as http://wiki.darcs.net/
or http://lhc.seize.it/
