I tried that last night, and was surprised how much that gave.
My next KimDaBa change will be to disable this scan (with an option to enabled 
it), and try to use SAX again to limit the last few seconds of XML loading.
When I tried sax last time I gained like 2 secs of my 11 secs load time, which 
I concluded wasn't worth it, but if my load time now are down to 4 secs, then 
it is indeed worth it.

Robert, it seems like you helped me avoid going through all the trouble of 
implementing a database backend, just to realize that it didn't give me 
anything for real. Thanks!
