I have yet to see a case where parallel query, with any current or
pending patch, gets more than about a 4x speedup.  I can't think of
any reason that there should be a wall at 4x, and I'm not sure we're
hitting the wall there for the same reason in all cases.  But your
observation corresponds to my experience.

I hope we eventually figure out how to make that much better, but I
wouldn't feel too bad about being at that spot now.  4x faster is
still a lot faster.
