The "webserver" is just a thin engine that understands and parses HTTP 
GET and POST requests and allow to add callbacks for paths or files. 
Should be easy to combine this with a real webserver by forwarding a 
request to a "localhost only" OLSRd server.

And it makes writing plugins like the HTTPinfo (if you want to write 
them) a lot easier.
