In my case, most of my content is static and the performance boost is
very significant. I'm using file_column to manage the uploads, so
using a "real web server" around this is just a pain.
I haven't noticed any stability problems at all either. Is this
something that people notice right away (perhaps due to something else
in their environment), or will it sneak up on me?
