Actually, internally, Unicorn only knows about Rack and wraps older
CGI-based Rails using the Unicorn::App::OldRails application (via

"unicorn_rails" basically wraps up the following config for you,
but you could achieve the same effect using "unicorn" and an
explicitly written config.ru:

------------ config.ru -------------
require 'config/boot'
require 'config/environment'
require 'unicorn/app/old_rails'
require 'unwritten_timeout_middleware'
use UnwrittenTimeoutMiddleware # :)
use Unicorn::App::OldRails::Static # optional
run Unicorn::App::OldRails.new

No problem :)
