What are we getting with the upgrade?  I see the stuff in the changelog, 
but are there any bugfixes or stuff that would cause us to want to use 
it over what we already have (and what works) ?

Should probably check stuff to make sure it's in working condition.

I am -0 on upgrading HSQL in 2.1.x unless there are some bugfixes that 
fix something that's not working properly.  If it ain't broke, why fix it?

The speed concerns are worth looking into, but I echo Ralph's sentiment 
towards not introducing stuff that's backwards-incompatible, especially 
within the 2.1.x branch.
