[Mongrel] Multiple mongrels for one app

Hi mongrel-users,

This is my first post, so I'm not sure if it's been asked before, but  
I can't find an answer anywhere.

If I have one rails application running, one processor I'm running it  
on, and mongrel is multi-threaded, why should I have more than one  
mongrel running?

Everyone seems to agree on 3-5 mongrels per rails app, but why?

I must be missing something, sorry if it's obvious.
