I know that Bugzilla is based on a real database and thus has
an advantage but couldn't the speed of gnats be improved?

And is this speed differential the same with the newer gnats 4.x?

Abandoning gnats for any other system seems like effort which 
could be put into optimizing gnats.  gcc is not the only project
using gnats.  

I must be getting old.. I remember when people fixed free software
rather than abandoning it. :)

But gnats also has an email interface which breaks all requirements
of real interactivity.
