Yup. It uses the built-in webserver in PHP 5.4 to actually serve pages. 
There's also quite a lot of other stuff that goes on to make sure that 
requests get routed to the right place, and to display useful 
information in the terminal.

It'll display all the requests, template logic, parameters, queries, 
hook callbacks, etc - as that stuff happens. Although you need to tell 
it what you want to see, because showing everything is usually way too 
much output to be useful. (Check out whippet --help)
