I load the rules from a script and parse them, storing them in a forest of
linked malloced structures. These structures are created by one writer but
then read by a number of readers, and later may be removed by the original
So, as you can imagine, I could store the forest in the db, although it might
be a mess. First I will look through the buffer management system, and see if
that will do the job.
