I tweeted @miyagawa to see if he had this benchmark, and if memory
serves mod_perl2 was about 75% the speed of Starman in a hello world
benchmark with an unknown mod_perl2 configuration.  I believe the
Starman cpan page has benchmarks vs FastCGI.  My takeaway from those
benchmarks was that all of the webservers tested were essentially
equally fast since they were within 25-50% of the performance of each
other with a simple benchmark.

I'm not sold on packaging the webserver with the application though.
I've been moving towards using the webserver (in my case
httpd/mod_perl2) that is installed with the platform.  One less thing
for me to worry about, in my case the Centos packagers take care of
that problem for me.
