Yeah, obviously it depends on your use case, and we are limited by how much
our backends can handle too.  If we were just serving static files, maybe
it'd be higher, or maybe it'd be higher doing all reverse proxying...

Anyway, this is with the XS code.  Without it, we were hovering around 600
requests/sec for one of the machines.  XS headers gives a very large
performance boost, and makes it more stable.  (Bug in the Perl code?)
