So far, I've just been slamming code around, trying to get it into a
place where I *could* add in some of the new pristine stuff and the
sqlite work. It's been slow going with some of the travel that I've
done. I got some good work done in Brussels while my gf was off
working, but there is still a good chunk to do.
I've got some coding time coming up over the next 4-5 days, leading up
to ApacheCon. Of course, New Orleans might distract me a bit :-P
(thankfully, I've been a tourist there a few times, so I'll probably
just plant at a bar with laptop and code rather than go sightsee).
So. If things go well, then sure. I could have some stuff ready for
the 1.6 branch. Best case, we'll have new pristine files with some
info stored into the sqlite database.
No compression tho. And no properties in the sqlite database.
That's my basic expectation now. I'd probably shoot for properties
before compression. And that "no" is only my expectation, rather than
a hard line :-P
If things go not-well, then we'll just have some cleaned up WC code
with some reduced I/O and checksum'ing.
