Then we would be able to try using ImpermanendGraphDatabase.
Updating neo4j.rb for that shouldn't be hard (probably by adding a config option).
Yes, if it really does give us better performance. I think there is already an issue for this on the neo4j project (?)
Yeah, there is neo4jrb/neo4j#98
This is just a reminder since it involves updating jars, not only the neo4j.rb.
Have you been able to benchmark it?
