interceptors by themselves does not cost a lot. I would say that the 
ratio proce/functionalities is perfectly acceptable. Being able to add 
new interceptors is such a great advantage that we must be ready to pay 
a small price for it.

I would say that the global interceptor price is around 1.5% of the 
whole time spent into the server, during a search operation, if you 
exclude the cost of interceptor's operations (I mean, if the 
interceptors where just empty, the cost would be 1.5%).

However, if there are costly operations occuring in those interceptors, 
then this is another story...

Which interceptors will be added ?
