If I really have suggested that, sorry...

Apache is good software with excellent license. IMHO v.2 is unbeatable.
Trying write a replacement for it is somewhat a suicide. But I would love
to have the ability to develop apache modules in Ada, and plug Ada code to
it via a fast interface. FastCGI is an option, not without cons, but I hope
I will get there anyway.


The killer app in Ada could be server. Scalable, distribuited,
redundant, SMTP, IMAP, WebMail, IM enabled email server under good license.
Maybe also able to participate in XA transasactions.

Now back to reality :-)
