For the fun of it, I wrote a simple survey application[0] that includes
a self-hosted captcha (without tracking anyone), requires no Javascript,
is mobile friendly and should be fairly fast. Of course it can be
improved. I wrote it as a quick and dirty evening project, but I
think it demonstrates that this kind of an approach is practicable.
