esskar has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi monks.

We have developed an standalone server which supports HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and more. It's build in C and part of our product solution and does everything it has to do. :)
The HTTP part also has an CGI Interface and supports Perl.
Now we want to speed up things and thought about our own "mod_perl" implemenation.
So the question is if there are similar projects like mod_perl already but which do not depend on Apache?

Thanks in advance.
