I don't know if this will help, but using transactions dramatically 
speed things up.  I've only played around with inserting records from 
large CVS files in C++, but outside of a transaction it creates an 
automatic transaction every time an update is made and takes forever, 
but if all the updates are inserted into one transaction and committed 
as one, it is  substantially faster.
