Actually the point about CGI's being slow is a dumb one too. I can get about 80 requests/second on a small C CGI. And I can get about 90-100 requests/second on the same server from a mod_perl Apache::Registry script doing pretty much the same thing. CGI has a reputation for being slow mostly because of the Perl startup time, because perl became synonymous with CGI.
