Many thanks, Len.

Of course, those papers and $5 get me a Starbucks coffee. Most of my 
clients don't care about papers; they need schemas, software, 
guidance through the standards maze, etc -- especially integration of 
thought on how to put together a lot of pieces. Takes a certain 
amount of work so people know you're able and available to apply all 
that stuff directly to their practical issues. The indexer issues in 
this thread, for example, are very interesting and complex. The DB 
world is just starting to address them, and key developments like 
query optimization are not there yet. I think XQuery also still needs 
a lot of work in the text domain. So assembling a system that works 
well from the tools at hand is far from trivial. I may have to poke 
at Lucene again and see how far I can push it.
