It's what I'm doing. My concern is what may happen over time, when I feed
more and more files to the search engine, one more index each month.
OK, I may reindex all from time to time, but I will be more a more elegant
solution if I can sum the indexes.

What then? Memory is very inexpensive today. My index is 15 MBytes in size,
well below the memory I have available in my machine (256M).

Circa 10000, and I 'm not enough fluent in Perl to edit the scripts and use
the prog feature. ;-(
