Adding to my own post:
I did play around with shelving but did not see that there was
much of an increase in speed. The real estate requirement went up
to 8MB+.

Thinking outloud again...
I think I'll take the original comma delimited file.
Get all words and remove the common ones (the, of, and, etc)
Find every line where each particular word appears.
Store those codes in a dictionary with the word as the key.
(Basically, I'm turning the file around backwards I guess?)
Then for every keyword hit from the paragraph I'll have a list of
codes that I can count the nmber of positive hits on each code.

Hmm, sounds like a search engine to me.  Anybody got one written
in Python <g>. That's faster than a Zope Catalog?
