the datacenter where it's located, and that's really cost prohibitive
if I just want to contribute to Trac tickets. ;)

Sorry Jim, but if you want to make this happen you're going to have to
patch Trac itself, introduce the pragmas, optimize the DB schema as
well and then maintain that unless you get that patch into the Trac

It's not as easy as it sounds, putting the pragma's in especially with Trac.

Unless you've done this before and have specific advice, in which case
I think that would be really welcome in this case. :)
