I was thinking of the load-spreading aspects. On looking at it more closely
I realise that wwwjdic is probably not a good CDN candidate after all.  It
doesn't have static content; everything is coming out of dictionary files with
a humungous number of potential query terms. I don't think there really are
identifiable common queries, or at least not enough to pre-compose.
