[Mongrel] balancer://mongrel_cluster

A couple of questions please:

What is the benefit of having more than one Mongrel/Rails instance on 
the same machine, could one instance not serve as many requests as say 
three instances?

Is Mongrel Cluster a Apache add-in (like mod_*) or a separately  running 
load balancer which runs on a separate port, I could not work it out 
from the sample Apache config...

|# Redirect all non-static requests to cluster
  RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ balancer://mongrel_cluster%{REQUEST_URI} [P,QSA,L]

How does ||balancer://mongrel_cluster |work?

Many thanks, K.
