Err, I just needed...

   class StaticRequest(static.File): pass

Quite clean, and works exactly as I expected.  Kudos.
I wouldn't have asked the question if the comment of
this class didn't use "file" in the singular in the
docstring.  It could say:

    This request handler serves up a path, including
    the Directory and Files found recursively under it.

I'd also re-name the class "static.Path" as it really
isn't _just_ a file resource -- it serves up directories

Thanks tons.


P.S.  Is there a clear example (not using taps) of having
both an SMTP and a HTTP server in one process?  Thanks!
