That is an interesting point. It is amazing how many directory type things
get slammed, but the problem is really latency...such as a slow DNS lookup.
I wonder how much quicker an easy_install would be will local DNS
lookups,package names, etc.
I had a problem with a LDAP server I setup that was really tricky to figure
out until I wrote some scripts that ran continuously getting stats, and I
realized that a DNS server would hang occasionally and it would grind
everything to a halt. People kept telling me they would have an occasional
'ls -l' that would hang for 20 seconds. Caching DNS servers fixed it.
