Ah you too...
It would be a good idea to share experiences on that subject...You may solved some issues I am struggling with and vice versa...Some of the main issues I have encoutered:

> Reduce IO overhead into maintaining the physical structure
> Express domain disjointness at compile time (not at run time)
> Determine an adressing scheme that allow a natural inference of attributes based on the superkey physical representation
> Question oneself what would be a decent use of the core...

Let me know if these are issues you dealt with...On these, I have some interesting solutions to discuss...
