Yeah, but doing CGI in httpd is dead simple. Doing in through Tomcat
is a pain in the neck. IMO any reasonable production application needs
to have at least 2 back-end application servers, so you need a proxy
no matter what. I suppose you could use a hw lb, but those things know
how to route stuff like CGI to some other server, too.
