You don't use an HTTP daemon written in Perl to actually run a large site;
you use it for rapid prototyping because it's way faster to test ideas in
Perl than in C (no memory management to worry about, dynamic string
handling, quick hashes and arrays, etc.).  It's a good language for that.
Then you figure out what you want to do and you recode in C.  :)

then you ship it, beacause when you weren't looking, they changed your deadlines.... (grin)
