Thanx Sebastian.  I thought this was some sort of map type since I see 
you created your own OL class (OpenLayers.Layer.Acid).  I guess that 
type is only in your GitHub repo and not on OL trunk right ?

 From the looks of it your server is "pure python" as opposed to relying 
on an existing Python framework ?  Is there a way to run the server in a 
WSGI container (like mod_wsgi)  ?
