Most of the time is going to be in the perl in that case. my testing (a
couple of years ago) was that mysql was faster for simple queries, but
anything involving joins (eg searched on longdesc) were a lot faster in
postgres due to its query planner. 1750 bugs will all be in RAM, though,
so the difference should be almost nothing
