The short answer is no.
However, the original design was predicated on the limitations of CGI.
We were going to deal with scaling probably by using mod_python and a
standalone DBMS server. The current minimal improvement will be
collecting extra rows of data if the user wishes - as described. That
still doesn't invalidate the original design if we stick to the short
answer. I'm torn between yagni and painting myself into a corner.
