If you send it to me (offlist), then I'll try to run it
in four configurations:
1. Read into memory and a no-op save (to provide a baseline time)
2. Read and save into PostgreSQL.
3. Read and save using VW and GemStone.
4. Read and save into GOODS.
I've had GOODS running at some point, but its not
something I'm set up to do right now (it's been a TODO).
So config #4 may take a while. And, config #3 depends
on how easily your parsing code ports to VW.
(A config #5 would be Magma. But it is not currently
resilient to kicking out the power cord, so it's not
on my list.)

Your model seems more suited to a relational DB,
but I'll assume there's more to your app.

VW/GemStone may not be inexpensive by your calculation,
but it would provide a datapoint for price/performance
