Recently we moved from using fastcgi, to http proxy for our django app.
On the python side we are using Spawning, which was developed at
Linden Lab I believe.
It's quite nice, and very light weight / fast. It seems to be thread
It starts a process which forks I/o processes the i/o procesed can
either use forking or threading (we use threading). The master process
manages them, restarting them if they die etc. It handles incoming
connections and passes them to a free child process.
Fast, clean, efficient.
