I doubt it will be slower than Apache. The network part should be as  
fast, given that most Danga::Socket and IO::AIO code is XS. The  
header parsing and dispatching could probably be slower, although  
there is a HTTP::Headers::XS already.

I think you should look at qsmtpd as the source of inspirarion.
