Everything is running smoothly now, I intend to make a write up on the
wiki this weekend maybe on this.

One thing first though, since articles are indexed when they're parsed
and PL isn't doing any kind of sorting automatically on insert then
they should be sorted by date automatically with the latest articles
at the end of the database file since I suppose they're just appended?

How can I simply start walking from the end of the file until I've
found say 25 matches? This procedure should be the absolutely fastest
way of getting what I want.

I know about your iter example earlier and it seems like a good fit if
it starts walking in the right end?
