I don't know what 100 times bigger turns out to be in terms of
users/traffic, but I would recommend not investing a lot of time
investing in the FE handling this.  When you get to the point where
you're partitioning users based on shards of data, or just site
functions, you'll probably want a proxy cluster (and caching I'm sure)
in front of your FEs.  Most of your routing would need to happen at
level then.
