make CGI applications faster, but it allows you to run them on a different
host and with different user permissions (without the need for suexec).

Examples for spawning a scgi-cgi instance with daemontools or runit::

# run script

exec spawn-scgi -n -s /var/run/scgi-cgi.sock -u www-default -U www-data -- /usr/bin/scgi-cgi
