There is a reason for that and I question whether the CGI naysayers
were ever wrong. The arrival of mod_perl and mod_php provide two
distinct development platforms which do not need to fork a new 
process for each instance of the script execution.

I am not aware of many sysadmins who allow universal CGI access without
mod_perl, and a cgi-wrapper. 

For my money, I will stick with these 'next-generation' web technologies.
