I had always envisaged (although I don't think anybody -else- has!)
that for large sites we could swap the DBMS storage for SQL storage
where we can use a two-attribute key instead of the messy hack (the
dim+thingy) we have to use with the DBMS. That'd mean we could
"SELECT bar WHERE bar" to pretty neatly find the links going any
It's one of my vague plans to write a new Cell.pm (filename? not
sure, you know what I mean!), now it's module'd out, to use SQL and
see how it works for much bigger (ie: 100's of mbs) DBs.
