It seemed to make sense to post the bulk of my last comment as a new question: serverfault.com/questions/258956/…

comment When should I create a new user account to run software on a server?
Looks like DreamHost uses mod_suexec and forces its users to use CGI/FastCGI. See, for instance, blog.dreamhosters.com/2006/04/11/end-of-php-as-an-apache-module/… . I wonder how Passenger fits into this, though. Anyone know whether Passenger processes would be run as the Apache user or as the user from whose home directory the Passenger-powered app is run? I'm guessing the latter, for consistency with DreamHost's approach to PHP and Python, but I'm vague on how Passenger interacts with Apache, let alone with mod_suexec.

@Kromey, I couldn't find much information about mod_su. Do you mean mod_suexec?

comment Can an attacker sniff data in a URL over HTTPS?
When you say "the full URL", does that include the parameters (e.g. mysecretstring=1234)?
