[freeside] Performance issues

We run freeside on a PII Celeron 300.  It generally takes 5-10 seconds for
any sort of query or a new customer screen to come up.  If you watch top
when you do the query, you can see perl taking up 90-95% of the cpu time.
It's a bit scary to watch, but I guess it's expected when it's running
through as much perl script as it does.
