Too complicated to be worthwhile, it turns out.  I think it's time to  
throw in the towel.  Frustrating, because I was shooting for a win- 
win solution (bytecounts and valid UTF-8 both make things a lot  
easier on the Perl side).  My valid-UTF-8 patches from a month ago  
perform better than the current Java implementation, but bytecounts  
make for slower indexing.  Time to re-rethink the goal of index- 
compatibility.  How about, compatible for ascii-only indexes?  :|
