I want to invoke a maintenance method on all instances through a
webinterface. To do this I do a local http call to the other mongrels from
the current mongrel.
The problem is of course, that the current mongrel gets a timeout when it
tries to call itself (thus I need to know the port to be able to skip it).

I'm of course open for better ideas how to accomplish this
