Does that handle updated documents? I.e. a document in the old database, 
that needs to be replaced with one in the new database. Would one need 
to specify a private document ID to achieve that, or will a 
scriptindex-style unique boolean suffice?
And document deletes?

Would compacting an addition to an already compacted database be faster 
than compacting to a normal database?

If both updates and deletes are handled with the combination 
scriptindex+quartzcompact I'm certainly going to investigate it for 
future use.

Best regards,
