I was thinking about another possible speed improvement over the last
few days. Does the apache server use mod_ruby to run the api code, or
does it start up a new process for every request? If so, this could
probably make a big difference. After that we can start thinking about
using prepared statements for the sql queries to reduce the DB load
there too.

  real life)." - Malcolm Beattie (linux-kernel)
