Mongrel provides the application container for your Rails application.
 It receives an HTTP request, parses it, and passes that parsed
request into the Mongrel handler that invokes Rails.  Your application
does whatever it does, and then Rails, via its Mongrel handler, passes
a response back to Mongrel.  Mongrel generates an HTTP response and
sends it back to the browser.

Mongrel doesn't do anything with databases.  That is the purview of
your application.  Check with an appropriate Rails forum to see if
anyone knows how to use Seagull with a Rails app.
