Very interesting. So everybody is happy and it's very cool when some RoR
"Hello World" works somehow, but when classical and very used
webapplications (by millions of users) run faster, better and more secure,
nobody is impressed.

Of course is simpler. Even with Tomcat - just download, unpack and ready. It
works even better without Apache in front of it (since connectors and stuff
are always a PITA).

Maybe some short screencast would be the alternative, to show the people
that it's much simpler and faster,
and than post it as an anwer to all that have problems and ask for help with
setting up Apache + phpCGI.

This sounds good, but I'm not sure at what degree is the Resin team
interested in a community since maybe they want to sell this as consulting
(just guessing).
If it's not a problem than it would be very nice. 

For the begining it would be even great to have just a place to "report"
where do people use Quercus, how do they use it and what tricks were
required to make it work.
