same here, I use Debian stable, Apache 2.0 (because there's no 2.2 in
stable) and Pen as a mod_proxy_balancer replacement.

works great, and I think I'll keep it untill next stable comes out. 

If Apache 2.2 would be available in Debian Sarge, I'd use it's 
mod_proxy_balancer instead, no question ;-)
