I agree this is cool, but I think it would be healthier for the
project to wait until we release a rock-solid 1.0.

There are some incredibly non-obvious things happening inside, and a
big disruption right now wouldn't necessarily keep them all in
balance. Once we've met 1.0, we'll have a solid basis for comparison,
of any alternate implementations.

Then, let the fun begin. :)

Martin, I'd very much like to hear more about the sorts of indexers
you'd build. Sounds exciting.
