Implementing CGI support requires:
1) process manager, that will spawn to run CGIs (spawning usual workers
is not effective: they may be huge, they may have many open files that
should be FD_CLOEXEC'ed, etc),
It may take week of thinking and about 40 hours of coding.
THe thinking is easy for me: I can think 12 hours and more per day,
but productive coding is very hard. I simply have no many productive hours.
I have too many things to implement and CGI has the lowest priority of them
and I do not want to spend productive hours for it.
