Installed this:
and threw 128M at it. I doubt the stuff I uninstalled had much effect  
on system performance. Everything is pretty snappy, except for  
entering a URL in the browser (it looks like it's doing a live google  
search as you type. Why anyone would want this "feature" is beyond me).

  I also turned off all the animations/orientation, turned off USB  
debugging in the developer settings, and disabled selection sounds.

I've been able to browse http://www.android.com/market/ but not  
install anything from there, and most apps I find online have download  
links to the marketplace app. I remember seeing the marketplace app on  
one of the earlier Koolu betas. Will that work on cupcake?
