I've been hoping someone would ask that. I think it would be great to get
a Python wrapper. Make sure you use the development version of the API it
was redesigned for an object approach. Look at the perl/API.xs module for

Yes. There is work in this direction. (Jose, can you say more?) One
unsolved problem is how to *remove* a file from the index.
For now, reindexing is the way to go.

No plan for that. In fact I spent a lot of time removing the indexing code
from the library in the current dev version.
I could see it helpful for incremental indexing, but for normal indexing I
don't see it being much better than just forking and running the binary.
But I haven't thought much about it. Why do you ask?
