An improved HTTP Daemon?

I spent some time this weekend going through SOAP::Lite bugs, and I am so impressed with the S::L developer community! Almost all of the bugs contain patches of some kind. I can't tell you how wonderful it is (as the developer on a project like this) to have your users essentially doing your job for you! So thank you.

But that is not the point of this post. In one of the bugs a user, Michael Douglass to be exact, submitted what appears to be an improved implementation of SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Daemon. I am not ready to include the code in 0.65, but thought I would share it with the community and see if I can't get it to endorse it somehow so that I might include it in a later release.

I will test it eventually, but I am focusing on 0.65_3 right now and don't have the bandwidth for new features like this. Furthermore, I tend to avoid writing an HTTP daemon in Perl when I can use Apache for free. I would be curious to know why so many SOAP::Lite developers like using their own home grown HTTP daemon when there are so many good free ones available. Anyone care to shed some light on this?
