The way I use SSI, it's almost certain that the included file will change
(rotating banners) from one request to the next. I also have hundreds
of thousands of different pages to deal with. So it looks like no one
solution is going to work for everyone.

I did a test earlier today with the <!--#ssi-off --> patch and managed
to get 25-100% better response times when I was able to mark the end of
the SSI early in the HTML.
