Seif, before making inserts faster I would like to understand why they
are so slow right now. The last step should be to actually add some
PRAGMA optimizations, which have, as you already mentioned some

In order to get a better picture of what's going on, can you please try to get 
some more information, like:
How many events are in your database?
What's the insertion time for one event into an empty db?
Out of this 0.15 secs, how many time is spend in our python code, and what's 
the time of the actual sql action?
How much faster is adding 10 events at once compared to adding them one at a 
You think 0.15 secs is slow for inserting one event, what time do you expect, 
and why?

Bug description:
We insert pretty slowly with an average of 0.15 seconds for one event on my 
core i5 2.5 GHz beast.

RainCT had some optimization possibilities:
1) PRAGMA synchronous=OFF
2) PRAGMA journal_mode=OFF

The Chat:
<kamstrup> I think we are - but I can't recall... in case of failed 
transactions - but I don't even know if we use transactions these days...
<seif> <RainCT> try synchronous=OFF
<seif> <RainCT> but it can corrupt your database if your phone dies while ZG is 
<seif> <RainCT> and journal_mode=MEMORY
<seif> <RainCT> or OFF since we don't use rollback anyway
<seif> so maybe journal_mode = OFF is a good start?
<kamstrup> okay, he's probably right...
<kamstrup> 'grep -Ri rollback _zeitgeist/' is your friend :-)
<kamstrup> apparently we are not using rollback...
