Just FWIW, the usual setup for Mongrel is not having it straight open
to the outside world's requests, but to have it via a HTTP server
handling all the static/easy responses (i.e. images), and leaving
Mongrel just as a backend, application server. That way, you will
decrease the net load on Mongrel.
