My bad, my fingers dropped a zero.  I was gonna say 3000.  I don't know
the exact number but I can find out, i just wrapped a for loop around
the code that uploads the book content to zope.org; effectively
uploading the book 100 times.  I don't know the exact time either, but
in the time it ran before i killed it I recompiled and reconfigured a
linux kernel three times and had at least four cups of coffee.

That may be the number of calls it made before i killed it.

You mean 300?

I'm not sure why though, I'm not executing any DTML, just uploading a
bunch of structured text into File objects (and three DTML methods to
view the book).

Ok, in my spare time i'll cobble up a much better benchmark.
