Speed up iPhoto '09 by vacuuming its databases

I wonder if OS X has any other databases that can be vacuumed; Mail.app and iPhoto both benefit from this.

Where is the Mail file that you vacuumed? My Mail is running fairly slowly these days.

I've been vacuuming my Firefox 3 places.sql file a few times, which seems to improve playback of flash movies... I keep my browsing history for a long time, and my places.sql is over 20MB. On the other hand: I still did not find a definitive answer if the vacuuming really helps there -- for some time I thought that maybe clearing the actual cache had better results. Though I could restore my large places.sql from a backup, the caches are not being backed up, so could not be restored for testing...
