it's more the performance.. if you read the threads it goes into it  
in more detail.

why not use squid? I believe it does the memory -> disk -> original  
or a CDN like akamai/Coral

also are you sure that serving the images out of memory is faster  
than using sendfile and local disk? (or using a thin webserver to  
serve them instead of involving mod-perl at all)
