Yes, this is an obvious possibility, and someone else suggested a similar
idea, making an index file for the text-based format. Perhaps that will be
the best approach in the end; I don't know. Of course, you'd want to be
able to re-index the text-based data file in case you change it by hand.

You can at least get the performance of a binary-only solution this way,
but the space efficiency isn't the same if the text format is verbose...
