Hmmm, doesn't FastCGI (or any persistent Perl environment) have the
exact same issues?  The only obvious difference in memory footprint
would be if you were trying to handle static files from your mod_perl
server, which is not a recommended configuration.  (A separate image
server or a reverse proxy server is preferred for that.)
