I guess Michael is right. I have a (after days of figuring ;) a nice 
setup with apache2.2 and mpm-worker module which is even faster now,
also i have my "apache style" .htaccess back ;)

To my current knowledge Apache 2.2 with mpm-worker and fcgid and xcache 
is the most performant solution right now. My ab requests per second raised
from ~5 (untuned) to about 24 (with lighttpd) and are now around 30 - 
all with uncached pages containing user_int stuff.

I will write a howto on that setup soon, quite easy with debian sid.

Conclusion: Lighttpd or apache is a matter of taste, but mpm-worker and 
fcgid is a high performant must for apache.
