I've said it before and I'll have to say it again I guess, There isn't a 
check all points function in loadstone because of the database engine. Until 
somebody can find a way around that cold hard fact this won't change. We 
simply need a better database engine if there's going to be any background 
querying going on. With a large database a query can take several seconds 
depending on the speed of the phone. You can load several points in to 
memory but there are practical limits on just how many will fit.
