You really want to do this in a Camp Smalltalk context, I think. If there is 
one problem with interfacing ST to the web, it is that there are too many ways 
of doing it and one good CS solution is better than a lot of individual 
things. Even though stuff like native threads is highly VM-dependent, I feel 
there should be a common layer on top of it so the app-level people have a 
substrate for building the higher levels (one of the problems with the current 
state of ST web development: Comanche only on Squeak, WikiWorks only on VW, 

Probably one of the best lower-level things to do would be an FCGI interface. 
The FCGI model itself probably suggests other things you mentioned.

When I had a customer in Basel, I was bored in my hotel for two nights a week 
and that kept the speed up. When the assignment finished, I was two/thirds of 
the way and since then I've never been able to get back into the damned book
