I'm sorry, but we already have such a database in the .zim directory.
It is a bit more complex than a plain text file for performance
reasons, but basically fulfills the same purpose.

However this does not solve the problem. Zim should know automatically
which file to include in the database for a certain page name. So the
question remains how to deal with file names that map to the same page
