Right. That, and the translation factors are the two most important things to mention. Further, translatable quotes take longer to process because they're first evaluated for things to translate. This only equals out to a few FLOPS, but when increasing by magnitude, the FLOPS are increased exponentially as well. And add on a few more FLOPS for each translation, such as escaped quotes and dollar signs. -- </Daniel P.
