Both Gilles and Jeff made very good points and I'll point out one more.
The base database code in 3.1.x is *much* faster than that used
previously. However, even in some of the 3.1.x betas, there were database
corruption bugs and bugs in matching URLs against the limits. So you will
almost always have a bigger database for 3.1.x because it's indexing more
