Dunno, we were thinking about extending with or embedding in Perl with our
apps, and letting the resulting beasties talk to each other via sockets, 
so they would work via localhost or over network, distributed over several 
boxen. We get negligable hits/s, it's the query itself which takes time
(enough time so that people get batch IDs, so they can check up on the
result of the query in case connection times out. Don't tell me, I know).

Because of this, I think we should be getting a 1.2 GHz Thunderbird, with
PC133-2-2-2. Lots of it. With a 2..4 soft IDE RAID I think this machine 
would totally demolish the oldish Sun, thus proving my point. After that,
I should have the mandate of going cluster, possibly using Scyld.
