Subject Re: Interesting HTTPd research (ACE, JAWS)

If you haven't looked at this yet, please do. (especially the C++ 
advocates) ACE appears to offer us some of the things we have be 
thinking about doing.

As an argument to the compiler issue and C++, we're essentially 
taking on a similar problem in WinNT. Many users of the NT version 
won't even have (or want) a compiler. There is no reason that we 
cannot provide binaries to Unix users without C++ compilers.
