Apache can handle it with fastcgi, and Nginx has an experimental perl
interpreter built into the latest versions. You just need to setup the
rules to know which pages should go to mongrel, and which to the perl
interpreter. I've been doing some similar things with Rails and some
fringe pieces in PHP. This works nicely with nginx.
