If I'm getting the point of this thread correctly, have a huge amount
of data in one table degrades INSERT/COPY performance even with just a
PKEY index. If that's about the size of it, read on. If not, ignore
me because I missed something.

Don't worry too much about tunnel vision. I see the same thing every
day with multi-million row tables. The bigger the table gets (with
only a pkey index) the slower the inserts go. If I start over
(truncate, drop/create table), or if I point the initial load at a new
table, everything gets speedy. I've always figured it was a function
of table size and learned to live with it...
