This is a legitimate question, but there's no need to shout :)

Sometimes you want a dictionary that is cleaned up and re-weighted by an
external process (human-based or other), even if it originally came from
your index. So it's not either/or - you can have a file-based dictionary
that nonetheless gives you stuff that _is_ in your index.

(Yeah, and sorted vs. unsorted ... I tried to hack it by tagging some
classes with a SortedIterator, but it was indeed a half-hearted
attempt... it needs to be fixed, not worked around).
