Do you really find it noticeable quicker? Benchmarks I've seen (none of
them that current) don't seem to support that. Depending on the software
versions involved, it seems to be anywhere from much faster through PHP to
a few % slower. Certainly no major penalty in any case.

If there's interest I'd be willing to do some benchmarks on a few 
different setups to see where things stand with current software.
