Well, the machine is a lot heavier loaded now than it was before PyPI was
really used; the load used to be ~0.05, it's now hovering around 0.8,
sometimes as high as 1.5. That isn't terribly high, though, as this is a
dual CPU machine, and Apache for one isn't slowed down by it. I believe i=
PyPI doing heavy I/O, or perhaps some form of locking, as the python
processes aren't using that much CPU either.
