:At the risk of being flamed... 
:If a decision has been made to include a python run-time with
:the install, the use of one of python's web/application server kits like
:zope ( zope.org ) or twisted ( twistedmatrix.com : currently moving, google 
:probably has cache ) could replace apache/php & dependencies at a cost of a 
:a few extra python libraries & scripts( more than a few in the case of 
:twisted ). 

    Hmm.  There are both positive and negative aspects in regards to 
    Zope.  On the positive side it might be able to replace Apache and
    it would leverage the already discussed Python.  On the negative side
    it is fairly complex and hefty... 18MB in /usr/local/www/Zope.

    The real question in regards to zope is... has anyone on our list
    used it and if you have, what is your opinion on using it to write
    an installer and/or package manager?  Also, does it have a complete 
    enough web server to completely replace Apache or would it be better
    to run it *under* Apache?
