I've had good experiences simply sticking oops in front of larger webservers
on Solaris and FreeBSD platforms. I'm unsure of how well it works under Linux
though - the threading info in their FAQ may be out of date... I think
threading has come along since 2.0.36, but I don't know enough about Linux
threading to state that it'll work a lot better under more recent kernels/libcs
or if you can simply select a different threading model that'll suit oops.
