Yup. So, ATM:

   Using old PyPI takes about 1m5s
   Using simple takes about       25s
   Using ppix  takes about            8s

Some notes:

- ZODB isn't the best example as it has download links to  
www.zope.org, making it take longer than packages without offsite  
links (relative to PyPI).

- I expect that the difference between simple and ppix *for me* is a  
matter of geography.

Refreshing an empty buildout checks the zc.buildout and setuptools  
packages.  For that:

Old PyPI takes 25s
Simple takes      8s
and ppix takes   .5s

Again, I assume that the difference between simple and ppix has more  
to do with geography than the difference between serving statically  
and dynamically. The simple page has more links on it than the ppix  
page, because I haven't gotten around to scarf all links off of a  
restructured-text rendering of long description.  I doubt that makes  
any difference.  It will be interesting to try again after I fix that.
