That, the other thing I'm thinking of is if we're going to start 
patching our instance heavily, perhaps we want to stick with 1.6.  I 
don't necessarily want to upgrade to 1.6 but I do want us to talk about it.

The page saves are causing our inability to cluster Moin in any 
efficient way.  I've thought about altering proxy location by action, 
that would help with some things but I've yet to set it up and see if it 
works the way we think it will.  (for example, altering the user, 
watched pages, etc are still a question mark in my head).
