This looks very interesting, I look forward to checking it out. Implementing
FastCGI has always seemed too daunting a task to undertake; I salute you.

Are you familiar with the wai package? If so, do you believe your package is
amenable to either itself adapting the wai, or having a wrapper built on top
of it?
