I am trying to determine (from people's experience here) if there is a
benefit to proxying apache -> lighttpd -> rails instead of just using
mod_fcgid -> rails.  I am having some concerns of the stability of the
apache modules as well as the incredibly painful first connect issue
apache mod_fcgid.  Is the lighttpd fcgi more stable and mature than
apache ?

 Is there a performance hit (or gain) to sticking lighttpd in the middle
apache and rails?
