I've just run my testscript 100 times to see if mongrel really was
that fast as the internet suggested.
Both webrick as mongrel are run in production mode, with the same
Both are run as a single process and default logging.

But in every test mongrel is a bit slower than WebRick,
for example :

Webrick: AdminController#index    101(count)  0.0457 (Avg)   0.5519
Mongrel: AdminController#index    101(count)  0.0536 (Avg)   0.6123
