 * Critical note here.  Sets and Messages *MUST* be stored in ascending
 * order.  There are stored that way (by specification) in the original
 * data file, however in the process of merging in new stuff you might
 * mix that up.  Don't!  The catget stuff does a binary search and will
 * totally lose it if these aren't in order (not contiguous mind you, just
 * in order.  If this turns out to be a major problem this could be enhanced
 * by adding a 'sorted' flag to the db, and sorting msgs and sets at load
 * time if things aren't sorted, but I'd like not to have to do that.

/*
 * I have tried here to define data structures which can be used
 * while the catalog is on disk, and at runtime.
 * This is rather dangerous of course, but I think it can be done without
 * overly increasing the memory usage, and it makes loading and storing
 * somewhat simpler and less prone to accidents.  I have also tried to
 * define on disk data structures which can be updated in place, so that
 * with a very large catalog (e.g. all system errors) you don't have to
 * load everything in memory in order to add or update one set.  With
 * this in mind there are "invalid" flags which allow items to be
 * invalidated and thus not loaded at runtime.  Note however that although
 * I pay attention to these when I load the DB, I do not currently use
 * them in gencat (it just reads everything into memory), so there is
 * no guarantee that this will all work.
