And there is httpd which you are already running, and you can run a very
low cost, separate instance with very minimal modules loaded.  With the
mod_proxy_balancer, you can shuffle off some of the traffic to a second,
third machine for good measure.

Is either better?  Google both for problems to determine how many people
are irritated with either.
