That's insane - definitely kills the idea stone dead. Unless.. could  
one prefetch a bunch of 'standard' objects at the very start, and work  
from there? That might reduce the query count down significantly.  
Another idea: fetch an entire group when one item from that group is  
requested; maybe you're doing  this already.

I hope using the database for caching full html pages will be a little  
more realistic.
