I think that most of mod_perl's users are split between hard core
enthusiasts and large companies who have dedicated hardware in house
that they can't outsource because their databases are too big to
migrate to the cloud.  VPS probably comes in second to dedicated
hardware, and clouds third.  I would like to know more though, maybe
we can run another mod_perl users survey; I'll drop that on the
mod_perl list.
