As others have suggested, eliminating CGI will be a big step in the
right direction. If you still need more speedups and have output that
is stable enough to benefit from caching then you can look at adding that

Note that even with cached data, you can still change it on-the-fly
with SSI. All my cached pages go through SSI filtering to present
different views depending on how and when accessed.
