Comment (by Kelson):

 If I can use lseek(), then this is simply perfect, but I can not find a
 Xapian::Database constructor accepting a fd at
 http://xapian.org/docs/apidoc/html/classXapian_1_1Database.html. It's an
 undocumented feature or just I'm a the from page?

 Regarding the file splitting, dekstop OSes have now a good support of big
 files. The problem we face is mostly on Android where low end devices
 still don't support exFat. Splitting the index might be an idea I should
 give a try.

 Otherwise, from my point of view, this ticket is implemented. Thx again
 for the work. I will use it in Kiwix as soon as this is released.
