Good point.
I think we're around 200 users currently, and not likely to go over 700.
(but access to get the numbers is at work, and I'm not)

I don't think that raw performance is going to matter. Maintainability is
key for this. In particular I'm keen to minimise the amount of
changing/wrapping of RT code, to make it as simple as possible for someone
not-me to upgrade the RT version in the future, when I'm no longer around.
