Yes, number of transactions matters a lot.  However upgrade is a special
case that runs in a single SQLite transaction as this makes most
upgrades faster.  Maybe for really large upgrades the huge transaction
is a problem?  My 100,000 node working copy upgrades in 45 minutes.

Upgrade does a number of read queries as well as writes, but all within
the same transaction.
