Well, I had the opportunity to speak with Dafydd yesterday. He said
that the package was almost ready to be submitted, thouht he is still
working on the .desktop file integration.

Yes this has been fixed, amongst many other things. Alexandria 0.5.0

properly filled (a few secs), operations are fast.
Some operations are also threaded. In the next version everything will be.
