Random note: web.Resource and friends and web.Request do not rely on an
internet connection: they rely on a handler which has a .server with some
properties and some other attributes. Creating such a handler is no problem
if we start from FileWrapper, add attributes, and create a server and
attach it to the handler ourselves.

So any *recorded and analysed* bug should be able to quickly become a test

looking for someplace else to grab power."|YODA: No...no... no. Quicker,
