Heck.  Thank you for reminder.  I was looking at something to
replace bozohttpd I use (because it is just too buggy), but
I forgot about busybox, which I maintain these days! :)
And it has exactly things I need - simple, inetd mode and
trivial cgi-bin support.

And indeed, there are a few bugreports against busybox about
missing httpd features which I'd like to address.

/me goes off to enable some stuff in busybox...
