Interesting.  I like the code (well, except for lists.c).  How did you
come to write your own version rather than use the locate which forms
part of GNU findutils or the other 'slocate' package?

I'm not asking 'what was wrong with GNU locate?'.  It's more that I'm
asking why you didn't use the other slocate.

One more wheel and we'll have enough for a car :)
