Yes, Shane had done some benchmarking about a year or so ago. PGStorage
was actually faster with small writes but slower for larger ones. As far
as packing, as a zodb implementation, packing is still required to
reduce the size of data in Postgres. BTW Stephan, where is Lovely using
it - a site example? I had read some time ago that they were exploring
it but not that it was being used.

Actually, Lovely Systems uses PGStorage because it is faster for them.
