Yep! It's called XSP (it's not IIS though), an MS developer wrote a blog
entry about it here with an example,
http://weblogs.asp.net/britchie/archive/2005/07/25/420512.aspx , and it
also has a mod_ plugin for Apache
http://www.codeproject.com/cpnet/introtomono2.asp . XSP would probably
crack if you tried to use it for a high-traffic site, but this
application fits perfectly

Huh? C# has IEnumerable which looks to be pretty much identical to
interface Iterator as well as the foreach() statement; I guess if you're
looking for bidirectional, that doesn't work though.
