Sooo ...

Isn't anyone going to announce that they hope to work on this?

Are your accounts all at the top level, or are they nested?  If nested,
what's the largest number of subaccounts in an account?

I doubt this makes a difference for this case, but your computer
is megahertz-rich and megabytes-poor.  For typical Linux desktop usage,
you might find that a machine with a processor half-as-slow, but with
twice-as-much memory will be faster.  Maybe. I know I do.

(You have a typical windows config.  I suspect that windows machines
are always memory-poor because of some technical windows reason.)
