Having Mongrel (Thin, or whatever) standing alone, not proxied
behind a full fledged web server is unusual but it works.
If you have a box with plenty of resources and a bunch of small
apps servicing not so many requests, adding a reverse proxy
arquitecture and clusters is overarquitecting.
But yes, it is unusual and if you want to gather webserver like
stats it would be better to install nginx, or you weapon of choice,
and let it take care of logging and also serving the static files.
