Hi Giorgos (everybody else may anser, too :-)
I noticed that inv_index_db stores the weight as a float, and these float
values look like: 0.23232469323. If it would be enough to store only 0.23
(in this case), then we could also multiply it by 100 and save as in short
unsigned int (which is 0-65535).
This way we could make inv_index_db 30% smaller. Despite the fact that
nobody cares about some hundred kilobytes anymore, does that make sense?
