isn't Apache. Sendmail isn't Qmail either. Both compete over a single

A perfectly viable way of running, I agree; that is not the reason I would like to see such a module. Let's step into the mind of Joe Newbie:

"...hmmm, wat's this thing, AOLserver, let's see. "apt-get install apache2-mod-aolserver". OK, so no I create a .adp page with some Tcl code. Cool, but I can do that in PHP too. Ah, I see, I create a database pool in my .htaccess file and can use it anywhere by name, neat! And so if I put a procedure in this init.tcl file, it is available anywhere, without the need for stupid include directives on every adp page and recompiling the same code over and over again. Nice. Lets benchmark this thing. Huh? The same code and database calls run how much faster than my PHP version!?"

I know in the case of debian, AOLserver 4.0.10 is available in stable, but someone with an "Apache mindset" probably wouldn't find or try it. Plus the configuration of it would be much closer to Apache's. (yes, mod-aolserver would probably need to give up the extreme fine tuning it can do now, but how many people really need that anyway?)
