Good point. However it should be noted that the admin front end (what 
you say by default on install) is only one of the views that kforge 
supports. Access to the actual services such as subversion or moinmoin 
are done through another virtual host. These services often use apache 
specific stuff (e.g. mod_dav for dav, mod_dav_svn for svn).

That is absolutely true and it would be good to support fcgi if that 
makes it more portable (and even on apache it reduces that amount of 
stuff you may need to install).
