Yes, I did, but now checked back with 8.2CVS.
The previously quoted result was achieved with
temp_buffers = 1000 on both 8.1.4 and 8.2CVS.
On 8.2CVS with temp_buffers = 4096, the 10 client case kills
the machine with swapping, but the 3 client runtime with
COPY(SELECT) went down to 2:41. The SELECT INTO TEMP
case went down to 3:36.

I will report back with that, say on Monday.
In the meantime, I documented the COPY (SELECT) case
and modified parser/analyze.c and tcop/utility.c so neither of them
calls anything from under another directory. I think it's cleaner now.
Also, I tried to implement more closely what printtup() does.
