Hello Timotheus,

Thank you for your email and links.
Tried running fastcgi [fastcgi-mono-server4] with both nginx and
lighttpd, now. Did not spend too much time on either. Say, one hour or
perhaps two, on each. Neither worked, yet. XSP4 gives us enough room
to be able to use what we got, for the time being.

As far as other servers and ASP.NET/Mono, QA is a little bit lacking.
I am of course grateful for what is out there, already. If someone has
time to dig in, I would be delighted to share more information. For
work, we have options. I have to more onto other tasks.

XSP4 is great!!! Glad that it is out there. :)
