[Mongrel] Why Rails + mongrel_cluster + load balancing doesn't work for us and the beginning of a solution

I have to chime in and agree with Zed here. We had similar problems at
MOG, and came to the conclusion that solving the delegation problem is
just curing the symptoms. By systematically offloading a lot of slow
requests to background processes, we got more flexibility and the
ability to check the progress of such events.

I'd say the general consensus is that any page that needs more than a
few seconds to load needs optimization or offloading.
