Sorry for the late reply, i'm to busy lately. I haven't had a chance
to test this since my only Perl based indexer is in production use
(even so it was only meant as a demo - sigh). I think i can risk re-
running an indexing process over the weekend - I'll report as soon as
i have the first results.
BTW, one of my urgent projects is putting up a publicly accessible Xapian
search on our website (www.zeit.de). I'll send a note to the list as soon
as the site is up (and maybe someone can then update the customer page).
So far the feedback from the in-house users is excellent.
