Toshio is working on putting a sane database backend into moin to
handle this, which will greatly speed things up.

Mike had the idea "hey, why don't we just background the mail
notification", which doesn't solve the problem, but papers over it for
the user who clicks "Save" - they get an instant "thanks for updating
the wiki" while the email happens in the background.  I made a quick
patch and Mike tested it on Friday on a test instance - and it looks
like it'll help until Toshio's stuff is done.
