Yay!  This was a week of hard work.  I hope that somebody finds it valuable.

This package is a native implementation of the FastCGI protocol,
allowing Haskell to work with any webserver that supports it. It makes
no attempt to imitate the interface of the cgi-3000 and fastcgi-3000
packages, because that API is tied too heavily to legacy interfaces,
as with its handling of exceptions, logging, and time. Its advantage
over those packages is primarily in the area of clean exception
management and better control structure which allows more versatility
in processing requests which are not simple GETs. In particular, POST
of large files should be possible, as should server-push responses
which return content a piece at a time. Also, of course, as a native
implementation, there is no dependency on a C library, which
simplifies the install process.
