So, the general sentiment is something like an MVC type framework, so, we
will most likely work on that.

If you want to be a part of this, please fork this repo:

I will accept pull requests if they make any remotest idea of "sense" right
now, since we dont' have much going.

The first thing (if you would like to contribute) would be to read up on
FCGI, and start writing the FCGI IO library in Qt.

If you don't want to contribute code, tell us want you want in the actual
framework, so that it will be included eventually.

As for the HTTP server, we will most likely have to borrow some code to
being with, (and parts of the QDjangoHttpServer can be a candidate), but,
once we get up and running, we should be good.

Also, as most people use Apache, we should have support (through FCGI) for
that as well, IMO.

Lastly, ties to a scripting language would be excellent, and it would be
great if we could start with Lua since it is dead simple to tie in with
C/C++ code, and then add Python capability as we get going farther into the
