[Nitro] Nitro on Apache

Here's an initial cracking of the nut.  Needs much refinement.

I have no idea whether this handles posts or not -- my hope is all the 
gnarly details are now handled by handle_context in adapter.rb.

If the approach is acceptable then there's probably a lengthy method in 
raw/cgi.rb that can be removed.

require "raw/adapter"

# No multi-threading.
Og.thread_safe = false if defined?(Og) and Og.respond_to?(:thread_safe)

module Raw

# A plain CGI adapter. To be used only in development
# environments, this adapter is *extremely* slow for
# live/production environments. This adapter is provided for
# the sake of completeness.

  class CgiAdapter
    include AdapterHandlerMixin
    def start(server)     # for server in context of CGI this is start, 
middle and end!
      @application = server # expected by handle_context in adapter.rb
      context = Context.new(server)
      context.env = ENV
      uri = ENV['REQUEST_URI']
      script_name = ENV['SCRIPT_NAME']
      context.env['REQUEST_URI'] = uri.sub(/#{script_name}/i, '')
      handle_context( context )
      puts "Content-type: #{context.content_type}"
      context.response_headers['Content-length'] = 
      context.response_headers.each { |k,v| puts "#{k}: #{v}" }
      puts "\n"
      puts context.output_buffer
