BDB wouldn't, since it's purely key/value. Although the openness of it
is a bit dubious.
But yeah, that was the reason for not doing it -- I was just pointing
out that if you're worried about perf, use a real database of some
kind, not plists.
Honestly, I don't really think it's worth the effort to improve it,
unless there's some clear profiling data to indicate it's a
bottleneck. It's not a particularly great system, but it's okay. The
[ByObject] prefs code could probably use some clean up though.
