While I would just LOVE to do this with you, especially since the 
concurrency problems have been fixed in MySQL, I simply don't have the 
time for it right now. Maybe in the near future. A real pity since I do 
right now have a few 16-core machines I could do this benchmark on. By 
the time my time frees up, those machines will be in production. :-( 

*Maybe* later on this year, around summertime, I'll take your challenge. 
By then, I should be past most of my current time sinks. Of course, I 
may have new ones, but not as bad as now. We'll see. It would be cool to 
get this on SlashDot, too! The Big MySQL/Postgress Showdown! The 
rustling of a few leaves, the tumbleweed rolling by, the dust clearing 
just in time for the face-off...
