Incremental indexing is somewhat flaky. I think that Jose is using
incremental swish in production (and adding files to it), but my
experience is that it sometimes core-dumps. I'm trying to create test
suite for that, but this condition is not trivially reproducible.
Merge for incremental databases doesn't work, and there are problems
with deleting files with zero length.
I would also appreciate if swish-e would support my new proposed header
so that -S prog could instruct swish-e what to do when in incremental
mode, but since incremental indexing still isn't rock-solid, it might
not be priority.
