It does. This is a one-time operation.

The time depends on the back-end, but all back-ends returned results 
in less than 0.7 sec. Considering the size of the databases involved, 
this is OK.

Currently there are 3 backends: custom made, sqlite and Interbase.
No surprise, the custom made one is fastest.
