I believe that the web server, and the general horribleness of
rails and libxml2 for this particular task, are just as much of
a bottleneck here as the database, if not more.
Is MySQL replication "real time" enough for this by the way? In
other words if I do a download from a slave is what I get going
to be good enough to base an upload to the master on?
