Since the time that article was written we did some specific performance
optimizations and other that improve those benchmarks, too (last I
checked for some of the benchmarks the improvements was 30+%, but this
was many months ago, so things are likely improved).

If you could file your program and the dataset to reproduce the
performance issues in a bugzilla bug report we'll take a look
and try to improve it.
