I'll use it in production. With CGI you have one advantage over Apache Modules or Embedded web servers, as far as your "actions" do their work without errors, you don't have to worry about possible memory leaks related to concurrency problems or threads or anything like that, CGI's are much less complex than servers. Knowing this, I'm pretty sure FreeSpider will fit my needs for this particular project.
