Tom, obviously I didn't word my post perfectly... I was not trying to say
you guys were doing anything wrong - quite the opposite. The suggestions
wasn't intended to catch clueless errors but rather to get some more eyes on
it so that we can find the non-obvious ones. Also, with Tim Berners-Lee
asking what sort of help was needed, I thought that perhaps we could ask him
for some names of people that might have knowledge that exceeds any of ours
in the realm of scaling databases, APIs, etc.

Don't get me wrong -- I was *not* trying to downplay the work you guys have
done or will do. I'm grateful for it!
