Rails deployment picture looking rosier

Apache committer Brian McCallister is taking over distribution of the FastCGI module for Apache 2, and moving it into the core Apache distribution. Given the ever increasing interest in Rails, I expected that at some point someone would take up this challenge, and I think that having a reliable, non-hackish deployment option for Apache will increase interest in Rails even more. I’m very enthusiastic about Rails, but the somewhat shaky deployment story almost put me off of it. I know that LightHTTPD is supposed to work like a charm, but I don’t like the idea of throwing away all of my Apache experience, and I expect that most system administrators don’t either.
