Congratulations to the new release, and may I say that the homepage looks 
smashing! :D

With the work of Antoine Latter's happstack-wai 
(https://github.com/aslatter/happstack-wai), it's likely possible to serve 
happstack applications through my (still in development) SPDY WAI server (
https://github.com/kolmodin/spdy) although I have not tested this 
combination yet.

Before I saw happstack-wai I had a quick look at the happstack API and saw 
that the Request keeps the request body as a (lazy?) String. I'm curious to 
the rationale for this, as one could expect a lazy bytestring would be more 
efficient, and some kind of stream would better support error handling 
(given that the String is indeed lazy). Sorry if this has been discussed 
before, I searched the mailing list without finding anything.

Feels like Happstack has been reborn, thanks again!
