Something that is *very* important when benching fopens-freads is the 
underlying file system and the activity of the HD.

I was told that a fopen - fread (php include() ) often does a file lock too. 
On a server where there is a lot of disc activity this may idle your app for 
seconds or even longer, since PHP will idle/wait untill it may actually open 
the file.

So in short: make sure you benchmark this on a system that is apropriate. 
simply benchmarking it on a single site on your localhost will not suffice!
