I'm not sure I will be able to reproduce your tests then.
After all, if I could, those 100K$ tools would be a blatant
ripoff then :)

Of course, I already did this in the past and published here
my results. At that time, I was testing the effect of a well
tuned DB_CONFIG file regarding bulk loading (with indexes)

with 2.2.x yet.
