I guess you know about the possible secvurity problems. This apart,
Jigsaw should be runnnable within an applet. The applet itself would
have to call the httpd main methods to initialize the server, etc.

Hopefully, if you use it just for that, you shouldn't have to ship too
many classes out to have the server run.
