We use CGI::Application on mod_perl 1.31 (I know, I know) with Apache 2 
as a reverse proxy.

We're looking at migrating to PSGI. We actually plan to do a full 
evaluation of backends (mod_perl2 vs Starman) and proxies (varnish, 
lighttpd, nginx, apache2, perlbal) with SSL thrown in the mix too (some 
proxies don't do SSL so we'll look at doing proxy + pound)
