I poked at this example with oprofile. It's entirely CPU-bound AFAICT,
and the CPU utilization is approximately
35% memmove/memcpy (difficult to distinguish these)
<1% anything else
Probably need to look at reducing the number of calls to g_int_compress
... it must be getting called a whole lot more than once per new index
entry, and I wonder why that should need to be.
