I'm moving this thread over to the libraries list. For those new to  
the thread, it is about replacing the current Network.CGI module with

I'd also be happy to do whatever work is needed for this. I'm still  
actively maintaining NewCGI. Here is a list of current features:

- Access to CGI parameters (e.g. form input) from both GET and POST  
- Access to CGI environment variables.
- Ability to set arbitrary response headers.

Data.ByteString. This allows for efficient handling of file uploads.
- Wrapper functions for compatibility with the existing Network.CGI  
- A CGI monad transformer.
- Basic exception handling and logging (these should be improved)
- Low-level run functions that allow using NewCGI programs with  
protocols other than CGI, for example FastCGI (http://
