There are some (admittedly terse) comments in the file:

and a description of the design in:

The lighttpd service can be installed on debian and ubuntu with:
    sudo apt-get install lighttpd

It can then be disabled on port 80 with
    sudo update-rc.d -f lighttpd remove
    update-rc.d lighttpd stop 80 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 .
