Well... Since I wrote it, I'm not _THAT_ confident on the WebApp module,
it's definitely NOT yet ready for prime time yet... But it works... It's
easy to use and in we're catching up fast... I wouldn't want to put out a
date for a final release, but, what I would suggest is, try it, with Apache
1.3 under Unix it should be tough enough to bare a production server...

In my opinion TC4 has always been better than 3, from its design point of
view... In terms of robustness, I've never seen (NEVER) 4.0 fail in the past
6 months...
