You probably could improve that by adjusting it's cache size or telling it
to handle locking itself. In my benchmarks, a local-socket MySQL is
extremely fast for simple key lookups like this, but BDB is typically at
least twice as fast as MySQL. Presumably this is because it just uses
in-process function calls with no sockets, SQL, etc.
