Not performance, scalability. You can't handle as many requests per second
if you use mod_perl without a front-end proxy. That's why people on this
list with a large site use them, and why every similar system in Ruby,
Python, and PHP also recommend separating your web front-end from your
application server processes if you need to scale.
