Are there any examples of using Mongrel to server regular CGI scripts.

I have a couple of remote locations that need to be able to host some
small CGI scripts but I don't really want to install Apache or anything
that heavyweight, but I do need it to run as a service.

I have looked around but can't seem to find an example setup.

Hey Walter,

I haven't worked on anything like that, but it's probably not too hard
hook up.  Currently  you can't dynamically add handlers yet but that's
planned for the 0.3.13 release very soon.  Maybe next week or so.

In theory it'd just exec the cgi script when requested.  Ping me in a
and I'll hook give you the status.
