That's what squeaksource3 on gemstone is doing, actually.
Three FCGI-servers (gems) serving the web interface and files, if necessary.
also, one extra gem to collect stale seaside sessions and one extra gem to do async things like update statistics and send out emails.
(The Squeak version of that uses Squeak processes for that and is probably not as resilient…)

Best regards
