I don't doubt that there would have been different options to choose
the layout of the database than those Kristaps has implemented, and in
the long run, checking what is worth improving might make sense.

But now is not the right time to start over, unless we want to miss
the 5.1 release.  What we have is working, and i'd say it performs
reasonably well.  I hope to enable it in -current one of the next

The basic architecture should not be changed right now,
whereas now is a good time for non-intrusive polishing.
