Ok. Well, I think there's no such thing, as the test was about a 
servlet. There's also a cache, so it won't go to the HD too often, but 
of course, I don't know how it really works. Also something to remember 
is that the HelloWorld example servlet is a very bad throughtput test: 
it has a very expensive i18n operation (it retrieves a resource bundle 
on each request), which Apache doesn't do. So it would be better to 
either test with a static file, or write a new servlet with the same 
output (minus i18n).

It would be good to test with HEAD (the test was done with 3.3) to see 
if the stat issue occurs.
