I wonder why http:// would be faster for small updates, I would think
going through Apache would still be slower. Maybe you just don't notice
it when the changeset is very small. Or perhaps you are seeing the cost
of forking the file system layer - while Apache is constantly up and
running and ready to go.

An uneducated guess would have to say that file:// is the most efficent
since a program layer is removed.
Have you read the book on multiple access methods? There are a few
gotchas in there.
