I wanted know if many people here use that implementation of FastCGI.

YES, for me too. But I need to convence my team about that. For Web
app, now, we use PHP.
I need to rewrite a Desktop app, coded in Delphi 7, to Web. The
options: PHP, Java, C# and Pascal. For me, FreePascal would be a good
choice, but the market here in Brazil does not like to use
Delphi/Pascal any more... now, the most use Java or C#. So, because
that, my team is worried about it, if exists support for reports, if
is fast, etc.

Exists a project open source, in Pascal, here in Brazil. It's call
ExtPascal <http://code.google.com/p/extpascal/>. This is a project to
code Web apps. It use ExtJS for client and Pascal for server.
