    access.config vs database table

    I'm curious if anyone know the reasons for the design decision to store node access permissions in an XML file instead of using a database table.

    Sure the use of database would result in much quicker queries for checking access permissions for a user - when you are serving or checking large amounts of nodes for access, eg in a search situation of protected content, the access permissions KILL site performance

    Has anyone out there found a way of pulling these permissions from an xml file into the database?

    It is really frustrating that the public access is stored in an XML filed (access.config).
    everytime we are publishing a new release we MUST remember to copy the old accessfile to the new release else all access data is gone.

    I'm also curios why it's stored this way, is it a design flaw? i cannot see the benefit doing it like this.

    Is there really no answer to this? feels kind of strange that you store such important data in a file wish might accidentally get deleted or even forgotten when doing releases. 

    Is there a plan to change this or is it already an option to store it in the database instead?

    Best Regards,
