It would if you also have static files and are trying to serve it via
same infrastructure. Even Apache would be better at serving static
files than builtin server. Because nginx can serve static files and
handle SSL, you may find that nginx front end serving static files and
load balancing to multiple back end Apache/mod_wsgi may be a better
If you are using a separate domain/server infrastructure to serve
static files, something which I am not sure web2py can easily do for
contained static files, then it may be a different matter.
