Yeah, it's obviously that benchmarks are done and published to make
the own product look good.
And yes, they might not have used the best (compiler-) options for
lighttpd. But while I'd be happy to see that can be responsible for
looking that bad, I doubt so. 10 to 20 percent ok, but up to 200% more
req/s (1 server config)?

While that would be fair, wouldn't it be poor for the products if a
team of experts is needed to get the best out of it?
