This is beautiful but deploying FastCGI is not that trivial. Recovery must
play a big part on the backend since the FastCGI stays resident (it should)
This could be replicated in Rev, pure RevTalk right now. It would not be
100% safe since we have a blocking engine but we could always use a monitor
process to detect lock up and kill it. I think it was 2006 or something,
that I was talking with Mark Wieder about how one should go to implement
that exact solution.
It can be done, heck, I am not the best programmer out there and I've
implemented FastCGI on Revolution 2.x and it actually worked. Now, you guys
got me hooked, I will write a big followup now not to hijack this thread.
