I *think* you discussed this already in the pkg-ruby-extras
mailinglist, but anyway I didn't act there ;-)
Mongrel *was* packaged for Debian. It is long time dead upstream, and
was removed from Wheezy.
For my use cases, I have found Thin to be a very good replacement for
Mongrel. I understand it reuses some of Mongrel's code. So, if
em-http-request requires mongrel for its tests, it is the tests that
should be rewritten for a maintained web application server.
