No. When it becomes slow, take a look and report


Do this a couple of times, verifying that you talk to different
processes (close your browser/use a command line tool if your
browser insists on keeping the connection open).

I can't study it, as I'm not awake at the times of the day when it
becomes loaded.

Unfortunately, that's not a short-term solution. It takes a lot of
effort (one day) to migrate the installation, and there are no
volunteers that have that much free time available. I, myself,
am booked until February 2008, at which point I might be able
to perform the migration of the installation to a new machine.

I dislike the wording "protect from the Wiki load", though.
I'm not so certain who needs protection from whom, here;
I personally consider the Wiki of equal importance for the
Python community as the Cheeseshop (I personally use it more
than the Cheeseshop).
