That's why I like the CGI gateway mechanism from ExtPascal. The CGI app (lightweight) will run the ascociated FCGI app (the true app) if it's not yet running. If it's already running, the CGI app acts as request proxy for the FCGI app. As FCGI no longer got requests (went idle) for some time, it terminates itself. So, you got CGI and FCGI advantages combined. It's also easier during development, especially debugging. Well, for some small apps, it might be overkill. But, for medium to large apps, with hundreds of concurrent requests, it simply shines over plain CGI.
