Also involved in that timing is the cost of spawning off a new Perl
interpreter for each email sent.  2.17.3ish introduced a perl module to
handle the mailing (replacing the processmail script), which runs in the
same process with the web CGI instead of spawning a new Perl interpreter,
and it's a quite dramatic speed improvement.  Note that is (until next weekend) still running 2.17.1.
