This has been discussed quite a bit on the infrastructure list.  If
you want to be involved in the infrastructure discussions, that is the
place.  There's work underway (coordinated on infrastructure) to get
good benchmarks of different tweaks to the Drupal.org setup.  Jonathan
Lambert is graciously undertaking that work.  I don't think he's
looking for help now, but when he releases his results I imagine that
it will be useful to get diverse opinions on them.
