You'd be better writing a parser and applet wrapper for either Apache java Protocol ( or Fast CGI ( Preferably FCGI, since that's specifically designed to be implementation-independent.

I wanted to put all of the hard stuff on the Apache side, in C, so there'd be no need for complex request-handling code on the Scheme side. FastCGI is uses a packet-based protocol that's non-trivial to implement. A design goal is to enable people who want to write a Scheme-based web application to download the module, read the sample code, and get their program responding to requests within an hour.

Notwithstanding my objections to FastCGI, I'm in favor of a Scheme implementation of the app server side of AJP/JK. As the page at the URL describes, it's simply a wire optimized HTTP. But getting such an implementation to work on a random Scheme would be a hassle for users, so it doesn't satisfy my up-and-running-in-an-hour goal.
