Subject Indexes on heterogeneous rows
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 16:23:53 GMT
Is it possible in 0.7.x to have indexes on heterogeneous rows, which have
different sets of columns?

For example, let's say you have three types of objects (1, 2, 3) which each
had three members. If your rows had the following pattern

type=1 a=? b=? c=?
type=2 d=? e=? f=?
type=3 g=? h=? i=?

could you index "type" as your primary index, and also index "a", "e", "h"
as secondary indexes, to get the objects of that type that you are looking

Would it work if you had billions of rows of each type?
