Hi Alek,

please note I'm talking about Synopsis, not Synopsys. The latter is an 
entirely different thing.
Synopsis right now isn't using a database at all. The SXR server would 
simply load data from a Python pickle. That just means the tool hasn't 
yet been used with projects where size or lookup time was an issue. If 
it becomes, we can certainly migrate to a real database backend with 
indexing capabilities.
