CGI load relative to Perl, etc. (last attempt, I promise)

I hate to repost, but on the odd chance someone here might have some 
info and could save me some testing time, this would be really helpful 
to me and possibly others:

Does anyone know how using Rev as a CGI stacks up against Perl, Python,
etc. in terms of server resource usage for equivalent tasks?

In brief, is Rev more efficient, less efficient, or roughly on par with 
other scripting languages for CGI use?

I have some fairly extensive processes to implement involving reading 
large (10-30 MB files) and generating a lot of small files after 
churning that data.  I'm hoping I can demonstrate that using Rev's nifty 
chunk expressions will make for an efficient solution that won't drag 
the server down any more than most other options for this sort of thing.
