Google recently released an add-on for Apache called mod_pagespeed that is supposed to do some common but under utilized speed ups for websites automatically. I think it would be cool if you guys enabled this on the local Apache installs. Here is the announcement for more information: Google Webmaster Central Blog: Make your websites run faster

From the Web Faction blog:

We have installed mod_pagespeed on all of our servers (except web1-web20 which run rhel4). It is disabled by default for all websites but if you are using a php/cgi/php app or a PHP-based app like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla etc. all you have to do to enable mod_pagespeed for your website is to add this line to your .htaccess file (or create a new .htaccess file if you don’t have one yet):

SetOutputFilter MOD_PAGESPEED_OUTPUT_FILTER

We do not have any immediate plans to install mod_pagespeed. If it is able to improve speed, then it is something we will have to consider. At this time we do not know enough about it to install it server wide.

In the meantime, you do have the option to install your own Apache instance where you can experiment with Google's new mod_pagespeed module.

You can add modules to Apache based applications installed through the control, but it's not simple.

Our Apache applications don't come with apxs, so you can't build anything against it. You'll need to build the module against another apxs and then copy the new module over to your current application.

If you're going to this trouble, you may be better off just building Apache completely from source, then building mod_pagespeed against it's apxs.
