Hi Kaspar:

I just found your mail buried deep in my fluxura box. Sorry about that!

I guess my main question is why would you use mongrel_cluster instead of 
  the  Mongrel configuration file option (-C) and specify the port on 
the command line like 'mongrel_rails  start -C /path/to/your/file -p 3000'?
