        Built-in web server features & performance

        I know that the built-in web server is only for testing and development purposes, and that it is not for production use.

        That said, I am still curious though as to what features it supports and how it performance.
        I don't expect it to perform well, since its not intended to, but it would still be fun to see some benchmarks.

        How does it work under the hood?
        Is it multi-threaded, is it asynchronous? Is it event-based? Does it use epoll()?
