Simple CGI-Perl is too costly a process, with all the startup time involved.
I guess we need to use mod_perl, with persistent database connections.

Transferring images by encrypting them would probably take too many
resources. We could transfer the images insecurely (since there's no harm if
anyone actually takes a look at them), but also transmit an encrypted
CHECKSUM to validate the images.
