	Well... the *largest* speed-up that Bugzilla could possibly experience,
at the moment, would actually be in code changes. :-) That is, if we get
mod_perl working, Bugzilla will become quite speedy.

	So, if you're talking about a real speed-up, some of the best
investments in that area would be assigning a bit of development time to
help us with our mod_perl efforts. They're actually not very complicated
efforts, they just require a lot of programmer hours. :-)

	But other than that, yes, I think a dual-processor machine would be
more useful for Bugzilla than a faster single-processor machine. If you
have even two or three people access Bugzilla simultaneously, you'll see
the advantage of MySQL and Apache being on different processors.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla Services. And Everything Else, too.
