Since no one else has responded, I'll give it a shot...

I have not done (or seen) any performance evaluation of the

Yes, that's how I'm using it. I want an SSL reverse proxy in front of a
Zope server and don't want something as heavy as Apache or Squid. My
application doesn't expect to be heavily loaded, so performance is not a
critical issue for me.

Check out the example echoserv_ssl.py for how to set up an SSL server.
It's very simple. Just apply that to the proxy.py example.

I'm making some changes to the ReverseProxyResource class to make it a
bit more efficient (less object creation per request), but it's not
finished yet...

Can't answer these, either.
