Oh, I though it was just for Directory listing. Does it handle  
automatically the MIME type? I see in the doc that there are  
references to a mimes.yml

thanks for the advice. This is not meant for production system but  
more simulator so should be fine. Otherwise I use Apache or any other  
web server usually to pick up the static files then have mongrel just  
handle dynamic part
