One of the uses of the command where duplicates are reported is to see how often the same theorem is proved under different names, which these are, and how to best consolidate them. It's usually used with narrow search parameters, so that the result lists tend to be small. It's less about the speed of the output (that may have been a consideration very early on, but not in the last years).

I like the interface, it's very responsive. There is a remnant from PG times: the best match is currently the last entry in the list, which means in jEdit that you need to scroll to see it. Should we automatically scroll to the bottom or reverse the list?
