You'll also likely do better to dump, *then* load as piping from a dump
directly to a load will likely cause your disk to thrash like mad, thus
slowing down the whole process. Piping through gzip might help too as
it will *dramatically* reduce the size of your dump file.

I was also thinking that gzipping and piping the dumpfile to another box
on your network (provided you've got 100 or 1000BT) might prove to be
faster, but in a test I just did across our 100BT LAN, I saw no
difference in time.
