Yes. No caching.

Very small code. We do almost nothing to render those pages. All the
code is very lightweight.

We're running on two servers (actually we're not even using all CPUs by
now) plus one ZEO server.

An estimation is that we can handle about 250-300 requests/s uncached. I
tested this with two different load testing tools (ab for some simple
checks, siege for some session tests) and was able to produce this

We do have some issues with write conflicts here and there, but I don't
see any workarounds right now. :/
