Try scaling beyond a small system, or running on shared hardware, etc. As
for the MT authors, the their are actually very well know among various
language groups for their insight in capacity planning, performance, etc.
Products such as livejournal scale well beyond what simple applications can
do, on far less hardware then many competitors. And their contributions are
great, Memcached, Perlbal, MogileFS just to name a couple. Wordpress is
among those groups that has started trying to backport tools such as
memcached because of the *good* concepts it helps with.
Writing static files is just another one of many methods that allows you to
tune your application. One of many tools to check out.
