The major drawback of yaws (which is also its major strength) is
that it is pure erlang and that dynamic pages must be programmed in
erlang. It's no rocket science to do a regular cgi interface, but for
now all dyncontent must be written in erlang. Hey .. I like that
but I know a lot of webdesigners that will have .. ehhh well how shall
put this .. "a hard time" grasping the recursion and all the other 
cool whatnots in erlang.
