More or less, yes, it can, but currently it is a bit unusable
since it takes forever to start (it has to parse the index file(s),
and parsing is written in python - rewritting it in C is on my TODO list)

On my 600MHz PIII it takes about 15 seconds, with about 50 index 
files (20MB total size) in /usr/share/dictd
