What do you mean by serializing things? I just do not know how to start a new
request other then from inside the termination callback. The application just
hangs once it enters the event loop. There is no other hook except an after
filter, is there? 

I guess my major question was do I have to write the server as a separate
executable from the rest of the application? Is there a way to avoid this if I
want to use mixed GET, POST, PUT request comming from the client in unpredicted
order at unpredicted times?

Please answer this (above) question - that is what I am majorly confused with.
Is there an easier way to do it with w3c?

Thanks,

Olga Antropova.
