Have you looked at SCGI? It uses pre-forked worker processes.

This performance doesn't get better with SCGI. It only helps you to speed
up the start up time (loading of python, connect to database, ...)

I would create a standalone script for testing the performance (no
cgi, not network traffic, ...) of the parts, which are independant of
the cgi frontend.
