Actually, if I'm not mistaken, the dev version of the validator (with 
the obvious caveat that it's a dev version...) *only* runs with 
mod_perl.

That said, I am surprised that the validator runs very slowly on your 
(old) machine. FWIW, the w3c service (serving gazillions requests every 
day) "only" runs on two servers,  with reasonable performance. I guess, 
since we started using templates, it does take a bit more memory, and 
the startup time is a bit longer, but the really bad performances that 
we had in 0.7.0 are a thing of the past.

If you can, give the 0.8-dev (from CVS) a try, it should not only work 
under mod_perl, it's also generally faster.
