Actually a standard query language allow to make complicated queries
easier to understand but almost never more efficient. We use SQL because
it has a very stable and well-know mathematical foundation and very good
implementations but a specialized storage format is almost always

In fact we use specialized storage formats for a lot of application
domains where standard SQL would be too slow. The fact that most of the
problems can be solved by SQL doesn't mean that SQL is good for

Said that, probably SQLite would be fast enough.
