Like, changes in CPU, changes in DSP that might make it sound better?

Just kind of wondering, when might the handling of ID3 tags ever move to a Database?
When the collection gets large it seems that it might help some things.
My footprint for memory usage right now stands at 178K on a Windows 2K server.
When that process gets swapped out, it sure takes a long time for it to get back into memory,
of course, I changed the hard drive to a 15K one so that problem has gone away.
