Which is why I love Lisp!! For my very first serious production
Common Lisp app I whipped up a persistent application server
behind Apache, connecting with a "mod_lisp"-like protocol via
Unix-domain sockets to CMUCL -- creating a new CMUCL thread for
each HTTP request -- talking to PostgreSQL with Eric Marsden's
PG library. [And Tim Bradshaw's HTOUT, though you didn't ask
about HTML generation...] All of my time was spent on making
my app do the right *application* stuff [and a certain amount of
web-page design tweaking]; the socket/SQL/thread stuff "just worked".
So... What was the problem again?
 Written in Fall 2002/Winter 2003, and still running. The CMUCL
server runs continuously [except when they take the co-lo host
down for some kind of maintenance], and I've updated the app
several times without stopping or reloading it. It just keeps
runnning & running & running..
