Yes - ah, interesting... from the web site you quote:

"__Supports__ ... the industry standard Apache web server" [my emphasis]
"Zero maintenance. No ... server process monitoring ... "
"'Phusion' and 'Phusion Passenger' are trademarks of Hongli Lai & Ninh Bui. 
All rights reserved."

Ah, interesting... that you say it's an Apache module. Maybe Messrs Hongli 
Lai & Ninh Bui could help you with your compression and chunking 
challenges?  'Cos when you suggest that Apache is functioning "Guess that 
works by luck" I might be tempted to suggest that Apache is a little more 
mature than Phusion.

But then again, your P.S. implies that you're a Phusion developer... ah,
