I tried having keys without the value in them (also making the index
only support zero or one value per key) and it was very fast. If this
approach would support multiple ids in a value, insertion speed would
be even slower (due to lookup for every insert). But it would
definately be an interesting implementation to use for one-to-one
lookups! Also I noticed that insertion speed degrades quite heavily
around 5M entries.

1000 lookups (in an index with 5M key/value pairs): 30-40ms (0.03 ms/lookup)

that is quite impressive and may be worth implementing as an index
provider for such indices.
