There's a difference between scaling and making something faster. ZEO
makes a single instance slower, right. But you can deal with more

Agreed.  But at the same time, I don't think it makes sense to keep
deploying more and more badly tuned instances. That's what I consider
"blind shotgun scaling" :) You need to scale, but you also need to
tune - and you need to be pragmatic about which is the appropriate
approach at any given point in time.

My perspective is always high-traffic systems. I never even consider small sites with few hits, for which ZEO won't do much. I have a blind spot for those ;)
