I know theres a WEBrick object and a few others out there that

when theres stable and fully featured servers already out there?
Why would you ever want to implement almost anything then? It’s
surely all been done before. Quite simply, either the existing
products don’t mesh well with peoples goals, they just want to learn
how to build something like a web server, ease of integration into
their application (though this kinda fits in with my first point), or
hell, every now and then you need to just re-invent the wheel; if for
no other reason than to kill some time.
Surely, you’ve re-invented the wheel at some point in your life,
don’t be so quick to criticize.
