Why? If the server is started from inetd it doesn't eat up any resources
while not in use. And another option would just have two (or more)
document roots. It is not difficult to configure httpd this way, but
configuration differs for different servers. Changing web server would
then be not very trivial task.

Yes, but as you mentioned to your e-mail to Christoph, we can't patch
Netscape to convert .gz files on the fly, not mentioning that if we
implement that using web server, there will be possibility to browse
documents from different host.
