No, you did not. But only last week someon'es head was (luckely for him
only virtually) almost chopped off for suggesting the usage of GUIDs ;-)

Part of the code I left out are some data conversions (e.g. from
path-to-file to blob, from text to date (not castable because of the
homebrew original format)). I don't believe that I can do these in a SQL
statement, can I (my knowledge of SQL as a langage is not that good)? .
However I will investigate if I can do the conversion in two steps and
check if it is faster.

But still, I wonder if ~100 inserts/second is a reasonable performance
for my software/hardware combination.
