I'll through out one other possibility to consider. Use tcl (not tk)
together with tclhttpd. This is a web server written entirely in tcl.
It is small, modular, easy to extend, and is plenty fast enough for the
purpose discussed. It is commonly used for embedding a webserver such
as this. If anyone is interested, they should check Brent Welch's book
for more information on tclhttpd.
And I believe the entire tcl installation, together with tclhttpd is
smaller than Apache.
That would kill two birds with one stone.
