I know this follows an existing pattern (psgi and webrick also
writes nontrivial amount of code inside GIT_DIR/gitweb), but can we
somehow clean it up so that we can do instaweb out of a repository
without writing so much into it first, before adding yet another one
to make the situation even worse, I wonder?

For now I'll queue this so that we won't lose sight of the topic,
but I am not exactly enthused.
