buffered-sql is used to separate authentication from accounting. It uses
the same threads as the other virtual servers. Default virtual server does
authentication queries at top speed while buffered-sql writes accounting
queries at the pace that doesn't interfere with authentication. If you are
doing *only* accounting there is not much to be gained by using
buffered-sql (it makes sense to use it if your database in unstable).
