You're missing the point -- set-up and tear-down overhead is involved 
for both python and php cgi based web serving, and Bruno I'm sure would 
concur that python in this suffers similarly.  You point at exactly the 
issue when you noted earlier:

It's more than appealing -- for example, it's fact with Zope, where Zeo 
adds the scalability.
