The WebKit regression tests use the system version of Apache on each  
platform that they run on.  mod_python and mod_pywebsocket are not  
Apache modules that are included out of the box on most platforms,  
which makes them difficult to use in our regression tests.  I recall  
work was done on a server implementation for WebSocket regression  
testing that was written purely in Python.  What happened to that?   
Why was that simple approach dropped in favor of an approach that  
requires multiple third-party Apache modules to be built and installed?
