I don't think updates will take 5 years, but you will have to wait. And
you'll have to wait for full-text search, and for more sophisticated
There's been an updates proposal for many years, but it still needs
significant work, and we have to have agreement on the read-only
language first. You wouldn't want us to ship what we have right now. And
