Yep, I will take a look into it. I was also planning on enabling caching for 
TWiki ( Can you guys take a 
look at the disadvantages listed there, and see if it is reasonable for our 
site? Personally, I think the performance gains are worthwhile.

If you agree with the caching, I'll make all this a unique "performance 
tuning" task for TWiki :)

PS.: depending on what needs to be changed on httpd.conf, it can be done 
on .htaccess. The TWiki installation guide required some changes to 
httpd.conf but I've managed to adapt them to .htaccess directives. I've done 
so to avoid possibly breaking something for other VHOSTs on belgarath, but of 
course we can make changes to httpd.conf, as soon as we can confirm they will 
only affect {test,www}
