I have looked at SWISHED. The one thin I wanted to avoid is apache.
Swishd uses persistant connections and forks with each new connection.
It doesn't not do any cacheing although I don't see any reason why it
shouldn't have it. 

I have attached the src tarballs. If this list cannot handle them I can
make them available on an FTP server.
