The problem is size/complexity, the aim of GNU inetutils is too provide
some "simple"(Yes simplicity is subjective).  Altought some of the
programs do offer features, for example the ftpd does not go to
the extent of features that WU-ftpd offers etc ...

It seems to me that wnserver is (and will be) an httpd capable
of "rival" Apache or other heavy servers.

I also failed to see in what wnserver is so special.
For example boa or thttpd are non-forking servers.
Apache does pre-fork() etc ..

Of course, I maybe of track and wnserver would be a wonderfull
