Faster for bigger boards, esp. 250k+ posts!

Faster, especially when your mysql database supports full text searching.

Every time you post or edit a message the wordlist search table is updated in the old situation which is not a very big problem when you just start a board. However the process is getting slower with the amount of posts your board is going to contain.

But thats not the only improvement.. I've seen that the posts_text and posts table aren't separated anymore and the overall performance for requesting a "viewtopic" is improved. (Not sure if thats has anything to do with the merge but I guess it isn't done without reason).

I did some other perfomance tweaks on phpBB2 with help from Lanzer (see topic on the phpBB2 board) and don't have any performance issues anymore, so I don't necessarily need phpBB3 but I'm looking forward to it anyway.

Other improvements are made with the handling of bbcode and that sort of stuff (bitfields) , all together it will be a nice upgrade 8)
