Well, not only webrick is slow, so is my laptop :)

> I got 333 req/sec with a simple static WEBrick filehandler

I benchmark this simple page:

<html>test</html>

with Webricks FileHandler and I got 48 req/seq. This is exactly the
same as I get with the original Nitro benchmark if I dissable the
session from the page.

So the question remains, is Webrick sooo much slowet than
lighttpd/fcgi?
