I've now done quite a bit of investigation into this: see my "whither our web servers series": parts  pone,  two, and  three.

I've followed this up with a real installation of fastcgi in lighttpd on my laptop, see details of how that was done at  installing lighttpd and fastcgi.

The next step will be to play more thoroughly with wsgi, and potentially put the discovery engine within it.

fastcgi is a considerable improvement on other options. If we are only doing python in fastcgi we might consider scgi as preferable, but at some future time.
