   |    Robert, thx for your profiling.
   |    As it looks now, I can't see that there are any thing else I can do
   |    to speed up things, except rewritting to a real database.  Well I
   |    could delay loading the plugins, but it is a constant of 500msec in
   |    your profiling, so I don't see much gained there either.
   |    Rewritting to a real db would be a huge job, and currently I dont
   |    see it worth it to save at most 2.5+1=3.5 secs. People with 50.000
   |    images might disagree, but we aren't really there yet (at least
   |    that is not what I hear from most kimdaba users), and once we are
   |    there, computers are likely so much faster that the 25 secs has
   |    gone done.
   | The other possibility would be a faster XML parser, or getting
   | Trolltech to improve their XML parser.

   They already did wtih Qt 3.3.3 (which I asume you use, otherwise
   your loading would be much slower)
