I saw a number of comments on this already that disputed the claim that
Mindcraft had "optimised both servers".

It was pointed out for example that the MinSpareServers setting was
changed from it's default setting of 5 to a setting of 1, effectively
starving Apache of available processes when loadspikes happened.

Perhaps a structured analysis of the configuration used, and whether
this configuration was optimised (or de-optimised) would be a valuable
addition to the argument.
