Pushing the delta (what you're suggesting) is only usable if it can be guranteed the user hasn't modified their tree at all (thus resulting in cache db differing from upstreams). That right there is the brass tacks of it; You wouldn't be able to push just the changes, you would have to regenerate the _whole_ db (slow, >20k inserts assuming only one table). Sidenote... please post seperate threads for seperate ideas/discussions, else it's damn hard to look back and pull the specific thread were something was discussed. ~harring
