The only question I still want to ask you is why do we care about the
parse time, when mod_perl is a preloaded and precompiled. If nothing
should be parsed at the *run time*, why it's important to work on the
*parse time*. I understand that it will make a server start and restart
faster.  Anything else that I've missed? 

Thanks a lot!
