While all of the new cool features in SlimServer are great, I think what
made SlimServer particularly useful in the first place is that it did a
basic thing very well. Therefore, I think it makes sense to keep the "slim"
in SlimServer and make any enhancements optional as plugins. Alternatively,
release an ultraslim version of slimserver for those who like to keep it
lean and mean for lesser platforms.
