Hmm, my hardware is pretty lame (Thinkpad X30 laptop, P3-M 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM,
2.5" IDE drive). Maybe it's because you're using a substantially larger
dataset than mine, e.g. more Btree nodes to update or more flushes to disk
or something. I'll try increasing the size of my benchmark test, but
annoyingly RestClient inherits Net::HTTP's 60-second request timeout, and
the high-level RestClient.get / RestClient.put API doesn't allow it to be
overridden. I'll probably monkey-patch Net::HTTP for simplicity.
