A bit late to the party.

In Opera we have lots of systems running modperl 2, ranging
 from 1 server to moderately large and critical apps.
For the most part we use an in-house framework started
many years ago.

Recently we have seen two friendly factions struggling
for power :), one moving towards Catalyst/DBIx/TT2 and
another testing Plack/PSGI.

Latest new project I deployed in production is a psgi
single sign on server that uses Plack::Handler::Apache2.

Yes, very interesting. I'm planning to compare
raw modperl 2, Plack::Handler::Apache2 and starman for
the same application and extract some performance data.

Yeah, also wrt stability. For medium and large scale systems
we usually deploy frontends as reverse proxies using
any of apache, nginx, varnish, perlbal or pound.
