Simple answer: A separate web server is yet another application to install, configure, track and maintain on my network.

I'm planning on using SOAP to expose the functionality of my log analysis scripts to other applications on my employer's network. By using a built-in daemon I can distrubute the scripts to my logging servers without having to worry about the dependencies and configurations.

Of course, this may be a moot point if the server in question is *supposed* to be a web server!

In tight spots like network appliances and embedded systems, a tiny daemon works better.
