The startup costs for Perl really stink, so for any kind of busy site 
you need persistent framework: mod_perl, fastcgi, or speedycgi.

It would be interesting to see how Apache (on Windows) does, but I'll 
bet it would be the same.

It would be nice to port to PerlScript/IISPerl, but I have no experience 
in that.
