Yes, I've been using the python server as described in the deployment 
guide, and it's very handy. But the real app (the one this was condensed 
out of) actually wants to download files from a server (that I can't add 
the app itself to), so for now I'm kind of stuck.

Hmmm - maybe I can modify SimpleHTTPServer to be a little "bridge 
server" that can receive the request, download from the internet to the 
local disk, and then supply it as requested ...

Looks like I may be able to join the sub-community after all :-)   More 
tomorrow or Tuesday :-)
