Okay. I think I figured it out. It seems that images and large objects are
the main culprit.  We have very few images, mainly just icons for the
content types and tabs.  

I discovered this by using lynx and with IE disabling images.  

So the new question is: how do I speed up image downloading? I'm guessing
this has something to do with the ZODB?
