Hmm, I've always used two apaches with mod_proxy. The main errors I got 
reported by the front-end apache were "proxy: error reading status line 
from remote server". But these errors are not consistent, I got them 
from time to time. I'm using libapreq2.08, mod_perl2.0.3 with httpd 
2.0.63. (perl5.8.3).

I've just got another VPS server with perl5.8.8 on it. I'll install 
httpd  2.2.9 and mod_perl 2.0.4 and test a little.
Should I get libapreq from svn or the latest stable version 2.08 is ok?

and one more question: I have read that on linux platforms it's better 
to use prefork instead of mpm-worker, I remember that we did some 
performance test ourselves and it sounds to be true.
