I maintain a similar package (weborf), but yet with some differences.

Weborf uses a basedirectory param while woof can use a directory or a file.
Weborf will not limit the number of connections.
Woof would tar a directory and weborf would produce an html list of files.
Weborf does not support file upload in the same way. The user would be forced 
to use a CGI script. Or, weborf supports the PUT method, but no browser does.
Weborf is also meant to be used as a normal webserver, and woof is not.

I think the upload option and the tar of directory are quite convenient.
