I'm aware that the whole feature isn't finished yet. But I'm really
worried that this can't be improved (speed wise) much even after all is
You said that it's because of using multiple sqlite dbs. But from what I
saw with the ProcessMonitor during an update, only one or two sqlite
files were accessed most of the time, especially the time where nothing
seemed to happen and all CPU was used.

I'm sorry, your work is definitely appreciated. And I'm sure the
features it provides are great.
But with the current performance, I would think that all those who are
using trunk already would strive to improve the performance as soon as
possible, to make it usable. Speaking for me, I tend to fix things that
bother me in my work first. I assumed that you guys would feel the same,
so I'm worried: either this performance is not really bothering you or
there isn't much you can do about it? Either way, for me this doesn't
look good.
