comment iptables — am I doing this right?
then it would not only have to check for port 80 but new state as well if it's not INVALID,RELATED, or ESTABLISHED it's new. that would add a minor inefficiency.

comment Make likewise use password file first for logins
I would think that with files listed first it would work... any chance there's been a reboot since you changed the order? (assuming that you did) not that that makes sense or should be required.

comment How can you tell how old an ssh key is?
Why's it matter? changing the servers key will require you to re-validate for all users.

comment Optimize serving of static files
also squillman is right that it would cause your concurrent sessions to go up if you use the same http server. I still recommend putting serving static images from a much lighter server (they can even be served on a different port, as long as the links to them in the page are a different domain)

comment Optimize serving of static files
no. the browser only cares about DNS, not even a different IP address.

comment SSH keypair generation: RSA or DSA?
actually RSA goes up to 4096. I always specify with a -b 4096. @spence what does SSL have to do with ssh? I use 4096 bit keys because generation time is a 1 time thing, and compared to what would happen if my keys fell into the wrong hands and were cracked. I don't notice any performance loss using a 4096 bit key after it's generated.
