There's a much more important issue here.
Does Myth *really* want to assume responsibility for public web security?
If you take over answering port 80, *all of the backend* becomes the attack
surface for *all of the internet*; everything is now a security bug.
No; I think this is an ill-advised approach, architecturally.
There is almost certainly a lower-impact way to fix whatever problems
people feel that MythWeb presently has.
