W2H does not do it. But if there is a demand it would not be difficult
to add this feature I guess (because of the same filestore). But still I
think that having an http server on the same machine with GCG programs
is easier solution. It does not need to be a main, outside-visible,
"public" server but a dedicated server only for W2H. You start on the
main http server and then GCG requests are solved by the dedicated
server. Would it work in your case?
