>From what you wrote, I had the impression that you WANT global IDs and
you WANT to just have one lookup function for all IDs. In fact, wasn't
that what we discussed at that time also with Volker? Globally unique

Besides that, loading ALL highlightings results in 2000 Format items.

BTW: Using a QVector and the ID as key also came to my mind earlier -
so the idea definitely makes sense, since the 2000 entries are not
sparse ;)
