IMHO apache perf cannot rivalize with varnish , that's why I put them  
behind varnish. We have differents applications (differents apache) and 
varnish regex are sufficient to switch the traffic.
Apache 2.2 (load balancing + mod_rewrite) is used to do load balancing 
on ZEO .In our case there are also hardware compression and load 
balancing in front of varnish.

but "Use-cases differ of course" and there are many good solutions and  
I am not using plone
