What do you think about:
- MapProxy with Gunicorn and eventlet
- Nginx with something like this (taken from Gunicorn site):

         location / {
             # checks for static file, if not found proxy to app
             try_files $uri @proxy_to_app;
	location @proxy_to_app {
             proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
             proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
             proxy_redirect off;
             proxy_pass   http://app_server;
This should do the the trick or not?

Re-Thanks :)
