I'm using the Zend_Search_Lucene implementation so I'm really not sure
how it handles the IndexReader.  At the top of the script I open the
index and do searches on it.  Unless Zend is doing something special in
the background I'm assuming I'm using the IndexReader on a per-page
basis.  I haven't been able to find any information on this yet, but
from all the examples I've been reading none of them say to keep the
index in a session to improve speed.  I'll have to get on the zend
mailing lists to find out more about best practices.
