To make static page delivery fast is easy. Has been done many times. I
think possibly the fastest HTTP server for static pages is the one
that got builtin to linux kernel a couple of years ago. The thing
is that static pages aren't that interesting. The trick is to make
dynamic pages deliver fast and to many at the same time.
