I do not think that you speak the full truth.
I`m support typo3 news site 2 year ago. 3500 lines of a configuration for 
tt_news written by different programmers.
Nearby 200.000 news in tt_new table and about 300 news categories.
 Pentium D 2,8GHz CPU/4Gb RAM, 4x7200rpm IDE HDD (RAID10)
apache1.3/mod_php for typo3, lighthttpd for static file - max 30 request to 
type3 per se
 (i ` m not sure, it is possible already had manual optimisation mysql 
tables and querys)

Theoretically: 30 request * 60 sec * 60 min * 24 hours = 2 592 000 user/day

But this bad theory because we had one big problem. After published good 
news a server received more than 3000 page request per second lasting not 
more than a half an hour. It gave many competing apache child processes 
(load average> 20), severe swopping, dead 80 port and many the lost money.

I tried squid before apache, it became much better, but it had minor 
problems, with job of voting, comments and etc.

The fast decision for such loading was to make dirty patches typo3 core and 
ext for active use memcached, to remove apache and lithhttpd, to start such 

static file =================\\
typo3/php-fpm demon <= fcgi => nginx  === <> more 20000 request/sec
\\                                                     //
 \ =====> memcached  ======>//

I think that the author of it tread had similar experience.

I cannot present attendance peaks if you have on the average 1M daily hits 
because the site described by me had on the average 50000 daily hits

You use many servers?
