[REBOL] Rebol web servers Re:

Sorry for the delayed response.
The webserver you're referring to went like this.
Originally, Tyler and I built a version with the goal of
making a working webserver in as few lines as possible.
This was 20 lines, if I remember right. Bo, later, reworked
the webserver to add REBOL cgi support.
So the goal wasn't really robustness, though it looks like
Ryan put it through its paces :-). A more robust webserver
could be achieved using port multiplexing. A good example
of this is Sterling Newton's http proxy script:
Certainly you could add mime types and all sorts of
stuff. There's also (Ingo Hohmann's) YaRWeS (Yet another rebol web
server -- did I get that right?) that had a bunch more
direct support for mime types and lots of other goodies as
does Cal Dixon's REBOL webserver:
(I can't seem to find Ingo's webserver. It's not on his
site or on rebol.org-- maybe it's not released anymore)
As far as licensing goes, the script is public domain, and
REBOL has it's own EULA (end user license agreement). So,
that's my understanding of that stuff.
