Since CoreData and managed objects are full of so much voodoo (and because it's been a long time since I originally wrote this app, so the CoreData stuff is pretty fuzzy by now), I wonder if there isn't a better system I could use to store document data. The app is an image organizer that can store references to thousands of images and movies (not the actual images), sort and filter them any number of ways (which is all handled by an NSArrayController), and tag them with keywords (also NSManagedObject).
What does CoreData give me that I can't get by simply archiving an array of NSDictionary? Well, aside from undo, writing only changed objects to the file, and all the rest of the stuff it does.
The previous version of the app used my own file format. I don't recall it being particularly slow or featureless. Hmm.
