+2.9:  Partial Support for Code Caching
+As of 1.3.24, LedgerSMB now supports caching of expensive dependencies in some
+environments so that response time is minimized.  Currently tested environments
+include Plack-based FCGI and the Perl web server Starlet.  Mod-perl might be
+possible to support at some point.
+The current approach is to daemonize the script, pre-load what can be preloaded,
+and then fork/execute/return so that the Perl interpreter does not have to worry
+about state issues and variable scopes in running scripts from the inherited 
+codebase.  This can increase speed greatly but it is still seen as somewhat
+experimental.  Code caching generally poses the possibility of some issues, and
+these are magnified in those areas of the code we have not replaced from
+If you run into issues here, please file bug reports.  If there are
+showstoppers, you can always run the program via CGI.  Please see our addons
+repository or ask on the email lists if you'd like to run this.  The handler
+scripts are not includede out of the box but will likely be included in future
