The simplest way to local webservices

Running Mongrel as a service has to be the simplest route to very capable local webservices I have seen so far. (For simplest "But I don't even have development tools" route, try InstantRails and SciTE for editing).
The Mongrel Win32 FAQ is incorrect on the start and stop steps though - the plugin does not expose start stop methods, instead just

net start servicename
net stop servicename

I would love for something this simple to exist for perl CGI scripts but I can't think a any drop in solutions. Can you?
