Well then I say let's just politely ask TomH to open up the MySQL TCP 
port for public access and create user accounts for us all, and off we 
go with factor 13 speed. I'm sure everyone will be pleased ;-)

Jokes aside, does your bulk importer also implement populating the 
history tables, making sure that every node referenced by a way (and 
every node/way/relation referenced by a relation) actually exists, and 
all these totally useless integrity constraints?
