Rather similar, though last I looked, ModMagnet in lighttpd was more
about selecting nodes to proxy to.

mod_wombat (probably mod_luau soon) is designed to let you write
arbitrary apache modules (including, but not limited to content
handlers) in lua. How lua interacts (or rather, doesn't) with threads
makes it *very* attractive for this.
