Yes, but lots of people are using Plack to refer to the Plack family of 
stuff. Mainly the PSGI spec, the middleware and possibly one of the new 
Plack/PSGI oriented servers (like Starman).

Yeah, that's what I see too. I'd like to see the performance of Starman 
vs mod_perl for normal applications (that don't need to do anything 
fancy with Apache). If it's anywhere close to mod_perl than I suspect 
lots of people would use it instead since it's much easier to setup and 
also much easier to package with your app since it's just a CPAN module. 
Would be nice to through FastCGI into that benchmark too.
