I would venture a guess that apache with caching enabled
- or Squid - will give you a much more noticeable increase in 
performance than adding one or more additional nodes to your 
ZEO cluster... IF you are serving a significant amount of 
cacheable data: images, semi-static content...

OTOH, if you are doing a lot of really dynamic stuff - 
updating content, running catalog queries that need to be 
very up to date, etc. - then ZEO will give good benefits.

Read Chris M's paper.  It's got a lot of good info.
