Well, as you probably know, most of those pages are dynamically generated,
so "anything to make Python run faster" is the right answer. SS2/40MHz/64GB
is a pretty low-end machine these days. More RAM will definitely help
any Unix machine, and particularly Solaris; if you can swing it, that's
the best answer. But consider different hardware; that's way out of
date, and slooow.
I suppose focusing on making Python faster might be a thing to try.
Make sure it's compiled with optimization.
