Rainbows! is an HTTP server for sleepy Rack applications.  It is based on
Unicorn, but designed to handle applications that expect long
request/response times and/or slow clients.

In addition to the 1.9-only IO.copy_stream, the new sendfile
1.0.0 gem may optionally be used with most concurrency models
(even under 1.8).
