    The other session I attended, about performance and tuning, made the point that benchmarking is tricky. Sure, there's less network traffic, which is nice, but there are things to consider like holding read locks for longer (or is it longer?) and the amount of space taken up by the temporary table. (If it grows too large, it needs to write to the disk.)

    Still, I look forward to trying it.
