Hi Markus

I'll try with some easy answers that won't help you much ;-)

The first one stored.

> Should I always use an appropriate BTree to store a big mapping? (Becuse the
> BTree isn't loaded at once)

Yes, particularly for a big flat mapping (e.g. a folder containing
many many items).

> How do indexes basically work or how they are made? (Are they also BTrees,
> so that if they are big, they won't load at once?)

Yes they are BTrees.
