Could "entries" be moved to sqlite for 1.6? Too much work? Seems
like that would yield an improvement.

Your explanation of how this will improve maintainable (and not be
throw-away work) helped me understand better. Thanks.

Is the minimum requires SQLite version going to be a problem? I
recall for merge tracking we were requiring a really old version and
even then some systems did not have it. I know everyone "loves
libraries" but maybe we ought to take the approach of compiling the
version we need into our library? Everyone talks about how easy that
would be to do, but we did not do it back when 1.5 was using SQLite.
I recall getting the library built on Windows was a PITA.
