These are technical problems, something Debian is very good at dealing
with in general.  I don't think we need more hardware resources.  We
need to use them better which probably means working on a better system
that's able to handle the load and that will scale better.  Things like
ditching dbm in favor of Postgres or similar, connection cacheing or
perhaps ssh port-forwarding and then connecting to a Postgres instance
over that port-forward would probably help alot...
