One of the things that DC and Jeff Bauer have talked about is that we'd like
to decouple the process activation part of PCGI from the actual PCGI
protocol.  mod_pcgi is designed to implement the protocol section.  There is
a second component we're working on for Zope2 called ZDaemon that will be a
generic daemon framework that will deal with process activation, etc.
