(Please line-wrap sensibly).

I think we tried that with Nico/Davide's delta already, and IIRC
we had mixed results.

It really depends on how big an index for a source is.  Keep in
mind that we keep --window (default=10) of the source text
in-core, and you are suggesting to keep index in-core as well,
so we need to take memory pressure into account.

Having said that, the initial number you posted suggests the
algorithm is very fast, in which case reusing index may not
matter.  We will see ;-).
