I would like to announce that I've pushed the latest changes to  
Beepbeep which make it the first (?) publicly available web-framework  
to support ewgi.

See this version's changes:
http://github.com/dmitriid/beepbeep/commit/b27ac8a359968d1dbf67e7d17d3ea669211f9bb6
and docs:

What's ewgi you ask?

ewgi is Erlang's answer to Python's wsgi, http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0333/ 
, and Ruby's Rack, http://rack.rubyforge.org/

It is a minimal interface between the webserver and you app. It lets  
you applicaton to be completely server-agnostic. More importantly, it  
allows chainable middleware. See Django's middleware, http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/http/middleware/ 
  and ewgi example middleware, http://github.com/skarab/ewgi_examples

ewgi's authors would like to see ewgi spec, http://code.google.com/p/ewgi/wiki/EWGISpecification 
, to become EEP in the future. However, there are not too many people  
talking about ewgi for some odd reason. Even though it's already being  
used in production: http://smarkets.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/huntermorris-erlangfactory.pdf
