I usually like this approach since it gives you a lot of control and let's you 
manipulate (start, stop, etc) one instance without having to affect others. It 
also gives you more scaling options as you can in the future easily split off 
some clients to other boxes as things grow. Just put a simple proxy in front of 
all these mod_perl processes to make things perform better and reduce the number 
of mod_perl processes you need.

But all of these processes does mean more RAM, so make sure you have lots. If 
you can a 64bit box will let you cram in more. Memory will almost definitely be 
your bottleneck since Perl sometimes trades memory for speed.
