In the past I've implemented the Zones Algorithm using b-trees instead
of sql, but I feel it is not a very good solution.

I recall long ago checking an r-tree algorithm (maybe from
rtreeportal) that used persistent r-trees and it could potentially be
very nice but it's risky to use code that is not actively developed
because when you hit a problem you are stuck!
