Python for CGI scripting

We've already used Python for CGI scripting in small projects and it
worked well.

We're now considering it for web projects with much higher hit rates.

I'm a bit worried about how it will scale.

Each hit on the site will call a CGI script which will load a new copy
of Python, taking time to load off disk and occupying at least another

Has anyone else addressed this issue? If so, how?

What are the prospects of a re-usable Python DLL?
