Hoi,
What makes me happy is that a public discussion is happening about the
performance and the future performance of the query engine of the Wikidata
query engine. Not only are things in the open but it has triggered
responses from knowledgeable people making it plain that there is room for
future growth.

Oh and Magnus is sprinkling his magic making his software perform better,
taking less of a toll to the update process of the query engine..
Thanks,
     GerardM
