I don't think you really have anything to worry about.  These "performance hits" for parsed
pages only really come into play when you have too much traffic for your server to handle
and you're looking to eek out every single ounce of performance.   For instance, my website
can get over 100,000 hits and maybe 20,000 pages per hour.  All my pages are PHP, and the
server has to parse probably around 1000 lines of PHP per page.  Even still, my server - a
dual 2.4 Ghz P4 - barely cracks a five minute average user load of .10.  My traffic could
easily double or triple without any ill effects.  SSIs and server parsed pages are there to
be used for exactly the reason you want to use them, and unless you site is huge and getting
slammed with traffic, the webserver will handle it just fine and you'll not notice any differences
at all.
