I repent. dispatch.plt is totally beautiful. I can't think of a better
way to integrate what is GOOD about PHP into the web-server. The
(int-argument) business is genius. I was definitely oblique about
associating it too strongly with not using continuations. However, I
would say that it is more difficult to use continuations with it,
because if you want to produce those nice looking URLs, you aren't
going to be using send/suspend.
