This is interesting for non-web stuff, too. Maybe anybody has experience 
using Berkeley Hashes from C++? Maybe you can even access Hashes from C++ 
that were written from Perl?

Image a mail client that always has an up-to-date index of all your mails. 
You could have a full text search over thousands of mails in less than one 
second!

So is adding documents at a later time less efficient compared to adding 
them when the index is created?
