yes yes, the idea to implement thats is just to adding support to a new
protocol in Free Pascal, because SCGI seems easy to be implemented hehe...
(several languages implement that)

Currently I'm using CGI in production, but soon I'll use FastCGI as
proxy, because some times I need to debug the already published
application, so using nginx or Apache proxy I can point the "Proxy Pass" to
my application running in my PC and debug it.

Yes, it can be implemented to read the buffer by demand like FCGI already
does. =)
