    It's pretty basic to the design of the http server.  Apache is a fairly
    heavy weight web server.  I'm sure you can find lighter-weight servers
    to serve out static content.  There is really no need to go to such
    extremes unless you are actually running a busy site.  On busy sites it
    is often a very good idea to separate the static content out from the
    dynamic content and to serve the static content from a different machine

lighttpd comes to mind.. very good for static content, and it uses the
mentioned arquitecture (1 main thread + kqueue/poll)...
