You should choose Apache over xsp. The reason is that xsp, as you've yourself
noted above, is a small, simple server. All it does (when used as a "frontend"
server) is to support the smallest possible subset of the HTTP 1.0 protocol,
enough to pass data from the ASP.NET runtime to the browser. It doesn't support
load balancing, chunking, HTTP 1.1, virtual hosts and much more.

Well, it stays around and gets improved - if that's what you ask :)

It is with 1.2.6 release.

That's a question for the MonoDevelop hackers, but I guess it would be as easy
as spawning the server from within the IDE (it could also be linked into the
IDE, since bulk of the server is a class library that implements the
necessary functionality)
