Last time I've heard about a large scale server thinking about switching 
from Apache to lighttpd, the one problem that site wanted to solve was a 
massive number slow clients simultaneously connected to the server, with 
the http server mostly just serving as a pipe between the client and 
php, and where the ideal solution had to consume as little resource per 
client as possible.

Did the admin of that site just miss what the solution should have been 
to handle this properly with Apache ?
