Well, in common use it's querying the database that really does the 
damage, and a lot of the things it would be nice to do like diffs, tag 
searching etc are only going to make this worse in the future.

Import scripts are the wildcard here though -- large numbers of edits 
are going to ruin just about any database distribution method.

Usage stats would indeed be very useful here.
