Power indeed. 

I wrote an application for case management that uses mod_perl's and
postgresql's specific features, via simple mod_perl handlers (LAMP to me
means Linux/Apache/Mod_Perl/Postgres).

The result is 15 milliseconds response times to generate an html page
with authentication and a hit to the database, on commodity hardware. My
application serves five to six users all day with a 1.6 Ghz processor
(200 dollar machine, 0 license) which peaks at 0.3% usage on busy
weekdays. That leaves me room for growth.

I don't suppose you can get the same numbers using frameworks?
