Hi Doug.

May I respond to this excellent news directly with a request? For  
some WICD testcases (accept-header identification, play animations  
while document is loading, etc.) we need a bit of serverside logic,  
to be hosted on a w3c server. I have created a very small (750 bytes  
text), but fully self-contained ruby servlet script (attached) for  
this purpose. It is preconfigured to run on port 8002. An instance of  
this servlet does currently run here: http://timur.mobi:8002/ (for  
test purposes only).
As you can see, it always returns all the HTTP request headers in  
plain text. Very simple.

You run the servlet like this: nohup ruby httpreq.rb >httpreq.log&
"httpreq" requires "Ruby" to be installed. If necessary, "Ruby" can  
be installed this way: apt-get install ruby

I don't know why this is, but today, I don't seem to be able to  
access the W3 CVS server ("lionel-hutz.w3.org: Connection refused").
I wanted to add/commit this servlet to the WICD test-suite. I'll do  
that later.
