Scalability of the voting systemby httptech (Chaplain)

I'm wondering if any thought has been given to the voting system's scalability. Right now it works pretty good, allowing you to advance to higher levels through a fair amount of work. However, as more and more users register, the amount of voting will increase. Is there a maximum number of votes one node can receive, so that when this site gets really busy I won't advance 3 levels in one day from a single post? <g>
And is the search box supposed to be showing up inside the banner ad now, or is it a victim of ilayer experimentation?
