Maybe if you set up a ZODB cache that allows just over 10 million objects, the lookup time will drop to microseconds. You might need a lot of RAM to do that, though.

Maybe, but somehow I think that disk IO will prevent this. I'll check.

If you're on Linux, you can tweak swappiness (/proc/sys/vm/swappiness; to affect how much RAM is used for the page cache and how much for your process.
