well, just to help you along in that we have installation of heavily used
fastcgi programs (written in c++) that used to connect to oracle each time,
now once upon startup.  we noticed a 10x improvement in speed related to the 
overall time it took the application to run from start to finish.  the load
is steadily increasing and fastcgi is handling it well.

Alias		/newdir/	/path/to/somedir/
AppHandler	someext
AppClass	/path/to/somedir/prog.someext

works like a charm.
