maybe I didn't read the documentation carefully enough but I thought an 
ordinary Web server could serve up read-only bzr repositories. 
originally, I'd put a repository under this URL (.bzr/)

When I try to extract a branch, I am told that it is not a branch.  I 
believe it has something to do with Cherokees reluctance to show a name 
starting with a dot.  I have looked over the documentation and haven't 
seen any way to make .bzr visible.

as for wscgi fcgi servers, let me know what's available (and simple 
since unfortunately, I have very little time for playing around). 
Cherokee can support fast cgi and scgi and if there is a wsgi  server 
for either/both, I'm game to at least try a little bit.  Actually, I'm 
also interested because I have a fairly time intensive CGI program I 
need to convert to scgi or fast CGI.  although, that might reveal a 
whole host of other sins.  :-)

amen to that.  I'll be glad to write up my configuration examples and 
some documentation for how to use bzr with Cherokee.
