You're right, that's not what I want.  What I really want, now that I 
thiink about it, is for objects to be loaded "on-demand", and for dirty 
objects to be periodically "flushed to disk". I probably need to give 
this some more thought, and I'll probably end up simply doing a SQL 
database, or XML.
