Why cant faces store all it faces in X-Face form, and then pull them
out of a dbm database using the x@y for a key? The data is then
treated like any X-Face line. This would seem to save a lot of disc
space and inodes. The db search could be done after searching of
directories in case people wanted other than 48x48x1 icons.

This sounds so simple I might even do it.....
