Along with Raphael's suggestion, perhaps during updates we could load
the new dictionaries into memory concurrently with the old ones. Then
we could compare the two and only act on items that actually have
differences before pushing the new updates. That would eliminate a lot
of the redundant work seen presently. Anyway, just a thought.
