I didn't know about the limited connections per host. Thanks!

Regarding separating static and dynamic content servers, doesn't PerlBal
pretty much act as the go-between?

Perlbal gets a request for, it passes the request to the
PHP server.  The PHP server talks to MogileFS tracker and the tracker lets
the PHP server know the real file location is in
It then sends a reproxy header to PerlBal, and PerlBal fetches the actual
file from (which happens to run lighttpd) and
returns it to the client.

Thus this would still allow separation of dynamic vs. static content doesn't
