Subject Re: nothing vs Registry vs module

The vast majority of the speedup is in the compilation / interpreter 
loadtime.  You will not see a another 20x increase in speed switching to a 
handler module.  I bemoan the fact that some of our shared hosting servers 
run Perl and PHP via suexec for EVERY call.  Ouch!
