Subject multiview using bloom filters
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2010 23:54:49 GMT

thanks to Paul's excellent suggestion I have rewritten the multiview
to use bloom filters, I had a concern that a bloom filter per view
would use too much memory but thanks in the main to excellent
implementation of bloom filters in erlang
( they seem to be
very space efficient.

New code is here

The code is simple, all one process, once we have agreed the approach
we can decide if there is any benefit in making the bloom filter
generation occur a separate process (using a genserver).

Comments as always appreciated, I will continue adding to the test suite.

thanks for the help,
