I thought about splitting, but this is all being burned from within an
automated script and I'm not sure I want to add another level of
abstraction (splits) and revamp my db schema.

That's an idea, it would perhaps allow figuring out the UDF overhead.

That is cheap.  My wholesale sources are still quite expensive.  When
I'm out that way I'll check it out.  However, I am also interested in

inspire confidence when it comes to quality levels!
