One possible caveat -- "mod_pagespeed" which is from Google dev (the start 
of this thread.)  We tried it in a pre-production 2.4 environment, and 
while most of the output was well rewritten/minified/re-ordered, it put an 
enormous hit on server CPU cycles (on a very fast machine) -- to the point 
that end-user browser load times suffered. We had to drop it.  (Note this 
was for a fairly complex perl/js site, so YMMV. Note also that Google do 
not *now* recommend it for 2.4, only 2.2, if I understand their notes 

Best -- Paul
