The gain from an accelerator is actually even more that that, as it takes
essentially zero seconds for Apache to return the generated content (which
in the case of a message board could be quite large) to Squid, which can
then feed it slowly to the user, leaving Apache free again to generate
another page.  When serving dialup users large dynamic pages this can be a
_huge_ gain.

I think Martin's pages (dimly recalling another thread) take a pretty long
time to generate though, so he may not see quite such a significant gain.
