So try it and see.

No need to get confrontative.

Nor did I imply you were.

But rather than coming here and asking, then getting angry with people
suggesting an alternative, try it yourself and see. If stuff doesn't
work, file a bug. But to be honest, it depends on some pretty low
level stuff, so it'll probably be a tough nut to crack.

And if you want it to run on port 80, you'd need to run as root, which
endangers your system to viruses/etc.
