OK! Now we're on the same page.  Finally someone who actually tests!

Check the CPU usage while it's doing the scan.  Know what it's doing?
Memory copies.  We've profiled it extensively.

So - that's the suckage - throwing more CPU power helps a bit, but the
underlying issue is poorly optimized code in the Postgres executor and lack
of I/O asynchrony.
