When Andy first said "no Apache" I mistakenly heard him to say "in the
kernel". Have heard others wanting to move http servers into the kernel
for (hopefully) better performance. IMHO this is the Microsoft Mistake,
to throw everything in including the kitchen sink.
OTOH a function such as sendfile() when integrated into the kernel can
know more about optimizing buffers, and is a good compromise.
