Thanks guys! I'm gonna try tuning the statistics back down to 10 on that
table and see what that does to the insertion rates. Oh and for Mark: Not
to worry - i'd actually tuned the stats there up myself awhile ago in an
experiment to see if -that- would've sped insertions some; back before i'd
had enough mileage on postgres for it to have occurred to me that might just

One quick follow up since I'm expecting y'all might know: Do the statistics
targets actually speed performance on an index search itself; the actual

case, and the planner chose the exact same path it would have if they'd just
