Actually, if you load PHP "as recommended", which is as an Apache module
vs using it as a CGI, it is faster then a straight C CGI ... my
preference, personally, remains using Perl CGIs (more flexible then Perl,
faster development time then C, and, if you use mod_perl, about the same
speed of execution as PHP-module)...
