That is part of the problem, some of the queries are too expensive.
Part of what I am doing is partitioning the data, looking at doing
periodic batch jobs to pre-cache/build more optimized tables (like a
view) and adding in a layer of caching between the db to save trips...

I'm just trying to get a feel for what people think about having that
many gets on a page load, especially in a PHP environment (and what
PHP interface is being used would help - PECL, john's mcache, etc...)
- and what kind of multiget to use (limitations?)
