Most features are totally undocumented at the moment. I'm deep into
the final couple of months of my undergrad degree, and buried under
everything, so I haven't had time to write documentation. I've been
hoping for contributions (hint!). Anyway, <fileserve> enables basic
web-server functionality. There's no real need for this rather than
a normal web server, but many people asked for this feature, and so
I added it. It serves files from the <webroot> directory, unless an
existing stream takes precendence. It's also designed for speed, so
it should be friendly to cpu usage even for many connected clients.
