Currently, this isn't an option.
Definitely, you need a server part,which accepts incoming HTTP request and passes them along to your AIR app.
Probably RED5 might be a good server part, since it supports quite much Flex related protocols: http://osflash.org/red5
I dont understand why you would need a special web server when there is Apache and IIS. All you need is a CGI DLL that passes the requests on to AIR and responses back to the web server.
I hope Adobe sees this and take advantage of IIS and Apache. It would be an opportunity for coders to use one language for front and backend. Like ASP.NET does.
If you'd like to call AIR using CGI, then this might be of interest: http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/html/help.html?content=12_Using_Regular_Expressions_12.ht ml
The Flex Module for Apache or IIS does not execute Flex on the server - it simple compiles it on a server.
As far as I understand your question, this isn't what you are looking for.
