I suspect that the bots are the bottleneck now. Here is the average
max time reported out of 3 runs with 1-5 independent VMs running a
total of 20,000 bots. The benchmark machine is a 3.0GHz dual,
quad-core, Intel Xeon running 64-bit CentOS 5.2 and R13B01.

1 VM:  1723.75ms
2 VMs: 1429.36ms
3 VMs: 1030.18ms
4 VMs: 845.32ms
5 VMs: 784.75ms

5 VMs on one box is probably pushing it, even with 8 cores...
