Perlbal on Multiple Processors

Hey everyone,

We currently plan to use Perlbal as our front end load balancer and  
reverse proxy, making use of the fantastic reproxy functionality. The home  
page states, "Perlbal is a single-threaded event-based server"... what  
does this imply for Perlbal running on a multi-processor machine? Does  
Perlbal only utilize one of the processors? Is it a waste to run it on  
dual proc, or is there a way to optimize it? Any help with these questions  
would be very much appreciated.
