Yes and no. This is one of many possible applications. The plural
search is a naive example, but for this application doesn't need to be
excat either since the results are fuzzy anyway.
I suppose plodding through 10,000 or so keys won't slow things down
horribly. I'll come up with a tree or build some caching scheme if
things get too bad.
I've got some C to read now.
