Correct, DSOs (Dynamically Shared Objects) basically load code into the
address space of Apache.  It definitely slows down Apache at start up
because of symbol resolving, but I haven't seen much of a performance
hit at execution time (results may vary).  In 1.3.x, it's a simple
LoadModule line in your httpd.conf.
