This is what we are doing with the xcamld. Xcamld is a light-weigh http 
server working behind the scenes of a full-fledged server like Apache, 
which has support for proxying a request to another server. The client 
connects to Apache via HTTP; Apache is configured to act as a 
transparent proxy for this request and relays it to the xcamld. We 
already have a complete implementation of the HTTP 1.1 protocol and are 
currently working on the Ocamlnet bindings.
