Ok I'll have to live with that I guess.
Apart from avoiding views or subselects when sorting afterwards and
putting the whole bunch in a huge SQL statement (which i'll have to
produce on-the-fly), do you have an other alternative? 
The 2 seconds is way to much, as the database will eventually run on a
machine that is 10 times slower.
