Did you try the Zend Accelerator module for PHP?  When used, it makes 
PHP an order of magnitude faster.  I'm not kidding.  Simply blows 
mod_perl/mod_python away.

Of course, the upshot is that you'd have to program in PHP to use it :-)

Grisha, it might be an interesting future addition to mod_python to 
cache compiled Python code and access the compiled code via shared 
memory like the Zend Accelerator does -- if that's even possible with 
the Python architecture.
