I didn't know about these db optimisations, but this seems like
something that would be especially welcome on laptops :-)  It's
something I'm now looking forward to!

As you know, I've also been working on this :-)  My three questions are:

Would you like to help maintain the backport?
Would you like to start now, or wait for 1.18.6?
How would you like to divide up the work?

For the last of these, a simple approach might be to build, see what's
missing, and each claim half of the list, but of course that doesn't
take care of interrelated dependency chains...but on the upside, if one
of us ends up having to block while waiting for the other then it would
feel more like a team effort haha
