A one record, one field example is a very rare occurance in any
real world app. Once again I refuse to use it as the base for any 
meaningful comparison. It's like using one person in a survey and
presenting their opinion as a statistical result.

For a much fairer comparison, come back next week with a UBL
document and we'll analyse that. That would be far more
representative of a typical business application than your 
example above.
