sendfile is only interesting if you are delivering static content.

If 90% of your content is dynamic/ being created by tomcat you will end
up with a significant performance decrease if you stream every request
through Apache.

What I ended up doing on a customer site to separate images from
content is using wwww.domain.com from dynamic content and  
image.domain.com
for static content.

Cheers
