There is a consideration, regarding using a proxy or a different server,
that has not been brought up: If there is mod_perl based access control
for the static files, then it's basically impossible not to go through a
mod_perl server to serve them.
In fact, I'm not sure what the effect would be in that scenario if a
proxy was used: would it serve the static file regardless of the access
control?, does it depend on the expiration data on the headers sent
through the proxy when the acess controled static file was sent?
