It "should" already be faster. Obviously, that's not the case.

My expectation is that it would be faster, and then we'd do some perf
improvements to make it even faster. Sounds like we definitely have to
do some of those other improvements.

We have a schema change to make, and once that is done, then we can
start looking at the performance. There could be lots of SQL queries
that need to be optimized. I also *know* that we issue way too many
queries. There should be ways to avoid a lot of those queries.

I'd like to avoid any caching, and rely on SQLite to maintain
in-memory caches. My gut says we just need to reduce the number of
