I've added some comments on the Github issue and I would say that this is
the way to go!!! At the same time, yesterday I applied several caches the
to PyBossa framework and now the app seems to fly :-) I'm still working on
this, but if you load the front page from Crowdcrafting.org or
ForestWatchers.net/pybossa you will feel the difference.

We can keep the discussion in the Github issues.
