If it involves making things not tested with apache, I'd actually be
less supportive for the whole plan.  I thought the primary objective
was to encourage people who currently are _not_ running httpd tests
by making a lightweight server available out of the box, robbing an
excuse "my box does not have apache installed" from them.

As long as a server supports bog standard CGI interface, smart-http
should work the same way with any such server.  For that reason, it
should be theoretically sufficient to test with one non-apache
server (i.e. mongoose) for the purpose of making sure _our_ end of
the set-up works, but still...
