An interesting little use-case for us, from a snippet of a conversation
on #slug:

13:45 < DanielS-work> w00t!
13:45  * DanielS-work is 90% of the way to releasing 0.0.1 of MoulDAVia :)
13:48 < nevyn> yay
13:50 < DanielS-work> nevyn: it's how i taught myself python heh. so far every
                      method i have (and I have most of them, and the hardest
                      ones are all done) is rfc-compliant
13:51 < nevyn> so do you like python?
13:51 < DanielS-work> *mumble*pythonrocks*mumble*
13:51 < DanielS-work> *cough cough splutter*
13:52 < nevyn> hehehehe
13:53 -!- wildfire [~wildfire at flu11888-1.gw.connect.com.au] has joined #slug
13:53 < spiv> What's MoulDAVia?  Something to do with WEBDAV?
13:54 < DanielS-work> spiv: nod
13:54 < spiv> DanielS-work: I have ask... have you heard of Twisted?
13:55 < DanielS-work> spiv: bugs.debian.org/158579
13:55 < DanielS-work> spiv: Indeed, I started off using Twisted, but later
                      abandoned it because it didn't do fork()s :)
13:55 < DanielS-work> I'm going to have to write a superserver of my own at
                      some point, inetd is icky.
13:56 < spiv> Why was forking necessary?
13:56 < spiv> For the chroot?
13:57 < DanielS-work> spiv: chroot(), setgid(), setuid()
13:57 < DanielS-work> spiv: you can't do that without a fork for obvious
                      reasons :)

-Andrew.
