Thinking out loud,

SSD is pretty close to RAM when it comes to seeking. Wouldn't that
mean that a bitset stored on an SSD would be more or less as fast as a
bitset in RAM? So how about storing all permutations of filters one
use on SSD? Perhaps loading them to RAM in case they are frequently
used? To me it sounds like a great idea.

isn't an issue.

The only real issue I can this of is the lack of
