Decompressing Mobipocket Dictionary

I'd like to decompress a dictionary in MOBI format. Is it possible without extracting everything first?

The Collins dictionary I'm using on my iRex DR1000S is very slow. I thought that if I decompress, i.e. set no compression, it will work faster.

I started mobi2oeb over 4 hours ago and it's still processing the file. Is that normal? Or should I use some other application that would decompress the file without extracting its contents?

Big dictionaries can take a very long time to process with an interpreted language like Perl.
