Hi Thom,

Thanks for taking a whack at this!

FWIW, I don't think it's useful to test this with a lot of concurrency -
at that point you're likely saturating the machine with context switches
etc. unless you have a lot of cores. As this is isn't related to
concurrency I'd rather just check a single connection.

I think you'd need to use prepared statements / -M prepared to see
benefits - when parsing statements for every execution the bottleneck is
elsewhere (hello O(#available_columns * #selected_columns) in
