Well, the spec requires Servlet 2.1, so this will actually create 
something that is not quite spec.

Well, I won't go as far as saying that I am working on a lightweight 
impl of the HTTP service, but I was playing around with creating a 
simple file-based HTTP server and thought that it could potentially be 
useful as a foundation for a lightweight HTTP service implementation. 
However, I probably won't be able to spend much time on that right now, 
since any extra time I have should go into Felix 1.2.0...

I would be willing to give advice/feedback/encouragement to someone 
willing to work on it.
