That sounds promising... If we can find some method to construct only
the differences, then it would be doable. Have a method for the user
to do initial generation, update an existing db, and in addition, to
download a database from a known source (I could generate a db in a
cronjob and then host it on twilightlair I think). I have no
experience with this at all, what would you recommend for doing an
incremental update?
