Why? I don't think ZEO is a panacea that magically makes apps faster
in all cases.  If you're not CPU-bound, the added network overhead and
increased chance of write conflicts might be a net loss.  Based on
everything he's said so far, it sounds like Gaute still has plenty of
headroom on his CPU.

As for the other benefits of ZEO:

- multiple ZEO clients does allow you better responsiveness with high
concurrency, but you can also try increasing the number of threads to
get the same effect without the added network overhead.

- not using ZEO means that Zope is a single point of failure. Can't
argue with that :)
