Setting up a Riak + Mongrel2 Stack

I think at the current time, setting up Mongrel2 as a front-end to Riak is a
bad idea. For one, if you're just looking for a load-balancer, there are
other well-tested existing solutions. Also, I have attempted to set up
Mongrel2 in front of some simple Ruby processes and some things that Riak
supports (e.g. chunked-encoding uploads) simply don't work. If you are
willing to downgrade your HTTP capabilities, and you want to have an
application between your front-end and Riak, then feel free to use it.
