There is a saying among performance engineers, that a man can drown in
a stream that is 2 feet deep on average.

It is critical here to look at peak demand, both in time as well as
geographically.  The geo aspect is interesting.  Traditionally OOo had
heavy usage in countries such as Brazil, South Africa, Australia, New
Zealand, etc.  It would be interesting to see if the Apache mirror
density in these areas is similar to what we had for OOo.
