I cannot answer directly about how this is implemented, but I would point
out that 20,000 records, even with large blobs, is a small enough set that
they don't really represent a thorough test of the implementation. Today's
hardware can fit that many records into memory quite easily and memory
searching is damned fast today. So, I'm not surprised at the outcome.
