Well, the problem here is that as far as I understand GPL, noone can write
non-GPL applications using tntnet. If it were released as LGPL (or at least
the library part of it), commercial users could take advantage of it.

Also, it isn't clear what licence applies to the code generated with your
template pre-processor.

CPPSERV is different approach to similar problem. Your goal was
C++ -based application server. Our goal was C++ replacement for
Java Servlet API. I want to be able to convince hard-core Java lovers
to use C++.

As for cooperation - I don't think there can be much code sharing
between tntnet and CPPSERV - because of the difference in approach.
However, the framework that we are building on top of CPPSERV may
very well be portable.

It is true that there wasn't all that much time for development
in past few months. I'm still adding critical features - like file uploads.
Once I get some free time, it'll take few weeks to bring it to 0.99
