Subject Re: Real update feature
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2003 18:18:53 GMT
It would be possible to add a feature which would let you efficiently 
update un-indexed field values.  But, to update an indexed field, 
because of the index file formats and algorithms, it would be very 
inefficient to do something other than delete+add.
