I wouldn't doubt it and I would be happy to use it if you tell me that 
I can extract a small search engine to do exactly what we need. We need 
something small and to the point, since LDAP evaluation is only a small 
piece of our framework, it is just important from a performance point 
of view. We cannot justify a big component with lots of hairy 
dependencies, for example.

So, do you have some idea how easy it would be to extract what we would 
need and how small would it be?

p.s. It would be funny if Felix started using Directory before 
Directory started using Felix. :-)
