Add MoHWS, a fork of Simon Marlow's HWS that I use for the online
translation behind e.g.
http://www.haskell.org.monadtransformer.parallelnetz.de/ .
 MoHWS has no support for building web formulars and processing and so
on, but I found it very convenient to insert my online translation stuff
into it.
