Currently every request from the browser occurs an overhead that is O(N) where N is the number of rules (or rulesets with match_rules).

This is not good enough, especially if we intend to include all the rules people are submitting.

O(1) lookups should be possible. One way is a dictionary of target domains, with lookups looking something like this:

If the request is for content at, we look up

*, thing.*.com, blah.thing.*

in the dictionary. For the time being, rulesets should be able to signal what domains they target in at least that level of specificity

Eg, Google.xml targets:


BUT, if we ever had to worry about *.google.* this wouldn't be enough...
