Hi Lyle,


 	Do you really need realtime reporting? Google Analytics, for 
example, works fine with a short delay. The reason I ask is that this will 
relieve the pressure to scale.

 	If the requirement is a "would like to have" I would solve this 
one when my system was starting to handle squillions of hits --- this kind 
of a problem is a nice one to have --- in the meantime create a system 
that doesn't give you too much grief and can evolve into its right 
technical/economic niche.
