Currently I have five small Seaside+GOODS apps running on a single 
server with two Squeak images running separately.  I proxy through 
apache which also serves absolutely _all_ of my static content (CSS, 
images, files).  I have no formal load measurements but at any given 
moment I have 10-20 active sessions total.  Session life for most of 
these applications is 24 hours but a session is considered "inactive" 
after 10 minutes without a request.  My estimate of my peak load is 
about 2 to 3 requests per second but I suspect that it is rather 
non-uniformly distributed.
