Interesting post related to thttpd+PHP. Although the linked README
states you can run IMP off thttpd/PHP, it also says:
NOTE: All requests will be serialized. That means, one long running
script will block all other requests. Choose another web-server, if you
want to execute arbitrary scripts.
which is rather nasty.

Well, this boils down to choosing the appropiate tool.
If you want to run arbitrary scripts, choose Apache/PHP. That
is a very powerful combo. If you want to run scripts which
execute very quickly and don't perform any complex operation,
give thttpd/PHP a try.
I've added a note about this to the thttpd README. If you
have any additions or corrections, please let me know.
