Anyone on this list use perlbal with lighttpd? I'm wondering what your
experiences have been, especially under higher loads.

Also, for reverse_proxy services, there are two fields in particular I'm
curious about:
  SET persist_backend = true
  SET verify_backend  = true

I was wondering if lighty supports these. In my case each lighty server
would be talking to only a few perlbals, so I think persist_backend would be
fine (right?). However, I couldn't find any info online as to whether lighty
supports the "OPTIONS" request that perlbal will make for verify_backend.
I'm using lighttpd 1.4.18 and perlbal 1.59 BTW.
