I'm totally OK with that. (I actually plan to provide some on the
offical web site as well, if I ever get to release 3.6.0, but that
certainly shouldn't prevent you from doing so...

Small note: I usually test Websh on Window, Linux and Solaris for
Tcl8.4, 8.5 and 8.6 with Apache 1.3, 2.0 and 2.2

- Websh with Tcl8.6 does not work yet on Linux and Solaris: the apache
  module crashes (standalone test suite works)
- Apache 1.3.41 does not perfectly work on Windows: 
  [web::config server_root] does not work on my machines
- Apache 2.2.11 sometimes crashes on Windows (nmake apachetest
  regularly crashes with Tcl8.5 and Tcl8.6)

Maybe some tests on your environment might either help track the bugs
or at least confirm the problems... So I wouldn't mind if you could run
make test as well as make apachetest on your system(s) and let me know
the outcome.
