Open the file with FileHandle -> open so you get it in a scalar, then you
can either save it in the application object and only call open if it's
undef e.g.

$req->app->{fh} ||= FileHandle -> open (  ) ;

You may also you a global variable for saveing your filehandle, which must
be either in another namespace, so it's not cleaned up by Embperl or it's
name muts be added to %CLEANUP with value 0.
