Yep, but it'd be difficult since you'd be working right at the bare
metal of HTTP protocol.  Rails is much much better unless you have a
specific need to make a small part faster and can't get rails to go.

If you want to do this, check out the code from svn (or browse it) and
take a look at all of the handlers in the lib/mongrel/handlers.rb file.
The ones there run the range of simple status handlers to gzip output
filters.  There's also the mongrel_upload_progress gem which gives you a
handler done as a ruby gem.
