I find that surprising, since I only use CGI if I'm not concerned about the
start time. It's not like there aren't dozens of "long-running process"
solutions for Python web apps including mod_python, FastCGI, SCGI, Twisted,
and even ReadyExec, to fit almost every conceivable need. And since the
advent of WSGI, more frameworks can be used with more of those deployment
options than ever before.
I guess I can imagine the extra millisecond or two pushing a borderline
case over from "making do with CGI" to "need an LRP solution", but I'd also
think that anybody with that kind of a situation would already know it.
I could be wrong of course, and I'm not arguing that it's *not* a possible
issue for some people, I'm just saying why it didn't occur to me as a use
case for needing faster startup. It also seems strange to me to think the
import time (especially import time of non-existent modules) would be a
significant factor compared to the actual request handling time.
