I don't think so. If you

(require web-server/lang/abort-resume)

you get the basic framework without much (any?) web server specific
stuff. AFAIK, YMMV, etc.

It must be that I'm a n%b, 'cause I don't see why you can't just send
the text of the program as the command line parameter, and eval that.
None of the examples you showed seemed to rely on state outside the
execute command. I haven't been following this conversation closely,
so forgive me if there are obvious problems with this.
