It's clear that binary data are faster than txt data. There are some guy
that don't want to hear this: their way is the best {clean, useful etc} 
and others sucks.

[danimoth at jane src]$time ./sarcina -o `which vim`
/usr/bin/vim is owned by vim

real    0m0.127s

sys     0m0.037s

[danimoth at jane src]$time pacman -Qo `which vim`
/usr/bin/vim è contenuto in vim 7.1.156-1

Ok, the pacman in [core] is bugged; whit the git version, I have 40 sec 
(without cache).

40 sec VS 0.1 sec ... It's a GOOD starting point.

I'm trying to setting up ( despite git .. that's really unusable..)
a copy of the git repo, with sqlite-backend coded.I want try to 
insert your modify into this.
