I keep the connection alive forever in order to test HTTP/1.1 use of 
persistent connections. I am worried that too many people use the mini 
server for anything real - it is really just a toy. If you are looking for 
a real server to use as a base for implementations then Anselm's Java 
based Jigsaw is a much better choice. The reason is that maintaining a 
full, application independent API is a lot of work so I have to focus, and 
in this case I am focusing on the client side of libwww.
