Just to clarify, since Marc actually knows something about one of the
performance issues: in 1.9 and trunk (and the proposed 1.8 backport),
we'll now create the SQLite stats table (that improves the query
optimizer results) when the WC database is opened, if the table doesn't
already exist. Since 1.8.8 (?) you can call "svn upgrade" to add that table.
