Well, really, it doesn't do much of anything for a single app, but  
it's there as a placeholder to show that rails works with apache;  
Apache can host several sites (virtual hosting), whereas mongrel  
can't...

It's also a placeholder until we get apache 1.3 replaced with apache  
2.2, which can do the the load balancing to multiple mongrel.

If you use IR for development and for a single app,  just use mongrel.
