Recent changes (new SQL database?) might have fixed feeds issues

I have noticed a bit less duplication of articles in recent weeks... BBC news still regularly repopulates the exact same article every hour or two, but I suspect their system might create "new" articles every time they rearrange the headlines.
I wondered if the recent change to the database in the mail module has made some improvements.
The other big issue I had when I first started using feeds in Vivaldi was that a fully-deleted feed article would always come back with the next refresh. I had got into the habit of leaving them in the trash and turning the feeds filter off in the trash view so I didn't see them any more.
So just now I decided to test this - I switched the filter to show feeds in the trash again (11 thousand articles there), cleared the trash and reloaded the feeds. So far (cross-fingers) I haven't seen large numbers of articles being resurrected like they used to be.
I am sure that some of the feeds (e.g. podcasts) have items still available which were originally published months ago, and that these used to reappear whenever I deleted them from the trash in the past. That behaviour has not repeated so far after clicking the reload buttons a few times, closing and opening Vivaldi and deleting a handful of new articles which came in.
So far so good...
