I'm not using Rack::Builder directly ... unless it's being used behind
the scenes.

I've got a config..ru as follows ...

#\ --warn --port 8008 --pid ./rack.pid
require 'rubygems'
require 'bundler/setup'

require 'rack'

require 'ruby_app/rack/application'
require 'ruby_app/rack/route'
require 'ruby_app/version'

use Rack::ShowExceptions
use Rack::Session::Pool
use Rack::Reloader
use Rack::ContentLength

map '/favicon.ico' do
  run Rack::File.new(File.join(RubyApp::ROOT, %w[resources

map '/ruby_app/resources' do
  run Rack::File.new(File.join(RubyApp::ROOT, %w[resources]))

map '/' do
  use RubyApp::Rack::Application
  run RubyApp::Rack::Route.new

... where RubyApp is my middleware/application.

During development the server is started via ...

Rack::Server.start(:config => '(path to config.ru)')

It's the RubyApp::Rack::Application class that I've observed being
initialized on every request.  I haven't checked but I suspect the
RubyApp::Rack::Route class is as well.

Thanks for your help.
