My point is your signal to noise ratio is off. You very well could be
correct (in fact I think you probably are) but it is irrelevant because
all you do is hand wave. I am sure there are plenty of people in this
community that would chew up and digest a valid benchmark from a
Oracle/PostgreSQL expert but since we never see them, it is really hard
to justify the work it would take to make significant architectural
