My implementation runs a bit faster :-)

[abw at shiny ~] time echo 'print "Content-type text/html\n\nhello world";' > foo

real    0m0.000s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m0.000s

I tried to work out how much faster my implementation was compared to yours. 
But I gave up when the back of my envelope threw a divide-by-zero exception.
