We use a pair of apache22 webservers in a round robin configuration at
work, doing proxying to app servers and serving static content for all
our websites, and they run very nicely indeed under the event MPM. This
is still marked as 'experimental' as apache, but the reason is that it
doesn't support accept filters or SSL yet (support is planned). If you
need SSL, I'd go for worker. If you need PHP, I'd go for prefork :)

We wanted a pair for redundancy and failover support, and we were unsure
one server could handle the load, but load tends to hover at about 0.1
on both boxes, and they tend to 'just work', which is nice :)

We use libthr, which works perfectly (as you would expect, lots of
apache devs run and recommend FreeBSD).
