I understand this is not for Production use. ;)

My concern is that an HTTP server built into groovy would come with its
potential risks – even it is not used directly.  Having to redeploy an
app where groovy is embedded because of an issue with such a
non-critical feature would be somewhat... frustrating.

As a groovy user, I want to make sure the pros and cons are carefully
considered before adding this to core.  My personal preference would be
to have this feature as part of an optional groovy library, but maybe
it's just me. :D
