Could the Optimize Catalog Lightroom feature be extended to include an option to optimize the previews and root-pixel databases?

These two files are not currently touched by the optimize and over time they become fragmented and slow LR down. Using a SQLite manager I was able to vacuum these databases and it had a significant impact on the I/O perf of LR.

If you are still having speed troubles (Especially in Library) make sure you are on final release 4.1 and run a Catalog Optimization. Your performance should improve!
