Comment(by olly):

 I think it's probably optimistic to think the overhead to fix this up in
 xapian-compact would be "little" - currently it copies chunks unmodified
 (except for a tweak to the start of chunks in some cases when renumbering
 documents).  Having to unpack and repack them without some entries is
 going to add significant CPU use, though shouldn't change I/O much.
