why is 'lost music' so slow?

I'm no ipod coder, but surely all it needs to do is load the database into memory once, then take a file listing of the entire ipod (a-la: dir *.* /s >list.txt ) listing of the ipod, and store that in mem , then compare the filename list to the entries in the database (all in memory, or at least not touching the ipod at this stage).

it's currently so slow all I can assume is it's reading the id3 tags for every file, or doing some other repetitive task via the usb interface or something, what's the point in doing that?

it could be improved, I know. Anyhow it's not a quite used feature, but I might look into it someday.
