Database separation for similarity searches

Hi all,

This summer, Swaty has work on database separation for similarity searches.
The goal was to separate the fuzzy fingerprints storage from core DB to a
dedicated DB. This will simplify the backup and prevent to overload the
core DB with large data by image (around 500 bytes by fingerprints)

The work is not completed as i know. All have be done in origin/gsoc17-db-sep
branch from git repository.

What's the status of this code exactly ? Can we continue with this
implementation, or it will be better to re-start this work from scratch ?

The DB separation is important for the future. Thank sin advance for your
