I agree fully.  This is the approach Rails takes too: It allows you to
choose from CGI or FCGI with an arbitrary webserver or Ruby Webrick for
quick 'n dirty testing.  (Webrick isn't as scalable as "big" webservers
like Apache or Lighttpd and I imagine Spiffy is not much better)

I've written something (or rather, mutated Gauche's CGI module into something) that allows you to choose CGI or FCGI (and soon, SCGI).;a=tree;f=/gateway-interface

I suppose that it could support Spiffy too.  But you might have to give up some of the advantages that Spiffy gives you.  I haven't really used Spiffy enough to understand the issues at hand. 

I don't consider it quite release-worthy yet, but I hope to rectify that in the next week or two.
