I have no idea where that comment came from... The scheme seems bogus to 
me.  It's a word, it occurs once or many times, there's no reason to treat 
it differently.  If we have memory consumption problems, then that's the 
problem to fix..  We've had a bunch of discussion about using other db 
systems (zodb, mysql, etc.).  Perhaps this is yet another reason to 
"modernize" our database.
