 If apache was to be replaced, I would suggest finding a very

 big project, a simple web server is actually pretty easy.  It
 probably wouldn't take more than 300 lines of Python (probably
 much less).

I suspect this project's resources would be better spent using an already-existing web server. I have no suggestion of whether that should be apache or zope or thttpd (if we want something really small), but I don't think we bring any special ideas to the writing of a new web server. Even if that takes only 300 lines, I'd rather see those 300 lines spent on a "really Fly installer" than a hum-drum web server.
