Ok, I spoke too soon. I forgot that we were still running the script
that checks if apache is responsive periodically and restarts it if not
(the load drop was because it was restarted).

Something or someone is making dozens of parallel requests to
conkeror.org which is filling all of the apache worker slots and making
moinmoin peg the cpu. It looks to have abated again now, but I'll keep
watching the apache server status for a while just in case.
