This won't help you when you have many small file buckets, which is  
what you get when you put a forest of mod_include directives into a  
file. Each of the (in our worst case 500 or so) file buckets is  
happily sent out using SENDFILE, one after the other, in tiny chunks  
on the wire. This same problem can occur in any dynamic application  
doing a lot of small writes.
