Allows FastCGI processes to be separated from web server process :
* Easy creation of chmoded socket.
* Privilege separation without needing a suid-binary,
or running a server as root.
* You can restart your web server and the FastCGI applications
without restarting the others.
* You can run them in different chroot()s.
* Running your FastCGI applications doesn’t depend on the web server
you are running, which allows for easier testing of/migration
to other web servers.
