Am I right, that it uses its own protocol, i.e. no WAI?

Is there some docs available besides the above package?

Any info how much resources it requires, i.e. is it in the category of
Happs or one can deploy it on shared hosting?

Does it play with other servers as proxy?

Any support for database back-end?

Excuse me for maybe dumb questions, but I'd like to hear more before
venturing into installing several apps.
