My hello world example has the redeeming feature that it was the
*only* attempt at a hello world in the athttpd docs. ;-)

I started learning Tcl two days ago and I shall be happy to step down
in favour of anyone who have more than 1 hour of tcl experience.  This
is open source, anyone is most welcome to have a go!

No habla tcl. I pretty much hate the language(a lot of programmers do,
check out ecos-discuss for some tcl popularity votes), but admit it's
compactness, expediency and sick elegance. Since it did the trick
nicely for athttpd I'll probably see more of it in the future. :-)

I'm working on file upload for athttpd and I'm hoping that someone
will step up to the tcl documenting challenge. As you have pointed
out, it's not a great challenge to better me!
