Yup.  The Gnus registry would be well suited to use sqlite directly,
though -- it's basically hand-maintaining a (large) database, and sqlite
is a good fit for that.

That is, I don't think the new normal persistence method would be ideal
for the registry.

But, yes, the Gnus registry is a good demonstration of why serialising
hash tables to disk is unworkable in practice.
