I've been trying to, but there's a content transfer encoding issue
getting the requests through thttpd's cgi right (something about gzip)
that I haven't been able to resolve, that's blocking it from actually
working. The right solution is either migrating httpd (but there are
no good ones :/) or patching thttpd to convey this part of the
request to cgi correctly. If there are any volunteers to help with the
latter I'd be happy to test.
