If we want to make joins very fast we should implement them using RD
trees. For the example cases where a join against a very large table
will produce a much smaller output, a RD tree will provide pretty much
the optimal behavior at a very low memory cost.

On the subject of high speed tree code for in-core applications, you
should check out http://judy.sourceforge.net/ . The performance
(insert, remove, lookup, AND storage) is really quite impressive.
Producing cache friendly code is harder than one might expect, and it
appears the judy library has already done a lot of the hard work. 
Though it is *L*GPLed, so perhaps that might scare some here away from
it. :) and good luck directly doing joins with a LC-TRIE. ;)
