Pretty much.  I use it to serve static files, reverse proxy to my internal
webservers, and provide introspection on what is going on with traffic and
the like.  The other features are nice to have too - reproxy, easy SSL,
header manipulation, plugin support, selectors, etc.

Sure, just about all of the above can be done with Apache or lighttpd or
some other solution, but in my experience the configuration of Perlbal is
the easiest and It Just Works.
