I expect it would be very good in terms of performance - though not
quite so convenient in terms of all the other niceties that DBMSes

The library itself is a few years old, I haven't retested it since then.

I don't have 64-bit hardware to play on. I expect it would work a lot
better because the 32-bit limit wouldn't be hit.

I hadn't honestly considered it. Isn't this functionality covered by
