Wow. I would be _very_ curious to see those benchmarks and the "modern"
JVM that was used. 

All my tests ( including JDK1.4, IBM vms, GCJ ) show that reusing is well
worth the trouble - at least if you have 100s of requests per second
( it is not worht the trouble for very low loads ). But I'm happy to
hear that I'm wrong.
