Note that this is simple because loading hte Template module takes time
(see my figures from last week-ish). mod_perl will give this all back to
us, and more.

The modulisation will in gneeral make things faster, by removing layers of 
indirection (eg DBI). In most cases, though, its just going to end up 
doing the same work somewhere else.
