Please don't implement this for now. The planned GSOC project concerning
the PTS is likely to change this initial design decision of having almost
only static content.
High availability is important for the PTS because it is a central part of
the communication infrastructure too, and that can't be done with
static.d.o. So we should probably investigate other ways to make it fault
tolerant rather than a simple redundancy of static HTML pages.
