Rack seems to be where much of the market is heading at the moment, led
at least by the ruby community - seems to be suitable for just about any
web language to interface to
Have a look at "Passenger" for apache - this kind of came at the problem
from a different direction, but they seem to be building a mod_rack
module in a roundabout kind of way. Performance appears to be higher
than mongrel with the added benefit that the host webserver is
completely aware of queuing and can do much better load balancing and
scaling up/down of cgi instances.
All those other features are the main reasons for putting CGI straight
into the webserver - anyone can simply proxy to a mongrel cluster...
