Question thread #48

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Depends on what you're doing, but 1 QPS is probably pretty reasonable for most purposes.

The initial application is backup. So:
- one bulk download the first time round
- subsequent intermittent, (usually) smaller updates
- not much user expectation of responsiveness

But the API library is separated from the user-facing functionality so may support other functions, in a neutral way, in the future.
