Has anyone tackled distributing a Rails application with Lighttpd?

I have encountered the usual headaches with clients not wanting to
jump through the hurdles required to get a Rails application up on

Installing Ruby, RubyGem, Rails, mod_fastcgi, configuring Apache, all
pose hurdles from some clients.

My thinking is, create an installation process that simply includes
Lighttpd to get the Rails application up and running quickly.

The client can then tackle the other hurdles later, simply proxy or
redirect to the Rail application.

Any thoughts?
