I'm also using beast on my domain, and although I'd hardly call it
taxed (with only 350 posts or so), it seems to be simple for people
to pick up and start using.

The one thing I would say is that I've had to turn off caching as I'm
getting a bad interaction with lighttpd and the rails cache code. It
doesn't happen with Mongrel, and I've yet to track down the exact
cause, but it's a little annoying.
