I'm probably stating the obvious here, but a ZEO server + at least one ZEO client is generally advisable at the very least for debugging purposes, in which case dual CPUs/cores can be somewhat helpful (though the zeo server is not terribly processor intesive in my experience). Even with a non-ZEO setup, dual cores could obviously be helpful if you were running other cpu intensive processes like an RDBMS on the same system.
