Possibly, but a good bit of work to bite off for the 1.6 timeframe
(which is scheduled to branch in 4-5 weeks).

A more likely improvement that I've mentioned is moving the properties
into SQLite. That could be a separable task from the

Hopefully. I don't recall if anybody has done a serious analysis of
reading/writing of the entries files.

Yah. Seems more likely, but would need to take an honest look.

Note that moving to SQLite would get rid of a bunch of loggy actions,
as SQLite will guarantee the atomicity for us. Thus, we could perform
a bunch of atomic operations as-we-go rather than one big sucker at
the end.
