As others already stated, making the user install additional modules  
is undesirable. My original comment was about having a simple module  
implementation that could be built from source by run-webkit-tests,  
and used without installation. Clearly, keeping source of mod_python  
in WebKit repository and building it from source is not going to work

I still think that being close to real web sites is important. In  
particular, it is likely that Web Sockets servers will need to share  
host with HTTP in order to share cookies and authentication  
credentials. It seems that an Apache module handling the Upgrade  
header is a natural approach for this.

On the other hand, we cannot know how exactly Web Sockets will be  
deployed in practice, so maybe we can just do what's easiest for us  
for now.
