While I write my django app I want to rsync to marsh and see it served

Yes it does. I'm not wedded to any one option. I've just been trying to 
get things working any way I could on my own. The best option for me now 
is the one I can get the best support for here. That looks like 
gunicorn. As you say it's simple to set up. They say to run it behind 
nginx but that can wait for another day. Fastcgi doesn't appeal as much 
because it isn't supported by django.

Yes:-) I might even contribute something to the wiki myself.

At this point I have two more questions:

1. How do I change my domtool config to serve my app at mydomain as well 
as www.mydomain. Currently I have the config suggested on the ancient 
"running you own apache" page, namely:
> mds at marsh:~$ cat .domtool/bdn-nz

I made some effort with the domtool docs but it  still wasn't clear what 
to do.

2. How would I have gunicorn persist after logout? I seem to be able do 
this by just appending '&' to the command line, but something tells me 
there is a better way.

Ta, Matthew.
