in reply to More than mod_cgi less than mod_perl.

Provide clean memory on each request, so that dirty CGI scripts would also run
I think that is just what makes mod_perl so fast and mod_cgi so slow. Because you don't have to reload/re-compile the scripts every request, you get the speed-up. I do not know of a way to keep the compiled code around (other than turning it into an *.exe file) after having it run but still provide a clean slate of variables and state each time it runs again. It's an interesting idea though and perhaps worthwhile of further research.

[Corion]: When you pass an arrayref, you get to treat it like a local array. But then, I'm cautious with the experimental features, because just when I thought function signatures were a set thing, there is a proposal to use sub [ $foo, $bar ] { ... } to ...
