I got it working with callbacks but I'll switch to mount, my noddy HTTP
server is probably not very HTTP-compliant :) 

I still need to know when a socket goes into a HUP or error state so I
can take it out of my poll loop while LWS is doing timeouts etc. before
finally closing it. Is there a way to do that with the mount option? If
not I can fix it from my end, but so far I've been managing that from
the LWS callbacks.

Next up SSL (and maybe a bit of protocol sniffing) and we will be ready
for launch.
