I've been looking around about this same thing.. lighttpd (ask lighty) 
looks interesting for the performance side of things.. There are a few 
features or modules that aren't implemented yet.. However, if you're 
just doing a standalone server with all trusted sites it could maybe pay 
off two fold..

1) claims of better performance (no comment as I've not tested it yet.)
2) utilizing a distributed backend for dynamic pages.. (currently they 
have PHP doing this, but I don't see much reason why it couldn't apply 
to mono as well.)
3) If nothing else it does produce a much smaller memory footprint (ymmv 
and it depends on how well you've tuned apache)

If someone is sincerely interested in a lighty module for Mono let me 
know and I'll investigate it further..

Miguel.... Why IIS?
