My tests showed that it was a big difference. It took about 1.2  
seconds to index 500 separate adds in separate xml files (with a  
single commit afterwards), compared to about 200 milliseconds when  
sending a single xml with 500 adds. And according to the documentation  
java automatically uses keep-alive (I found no way to force it myself).

ah, but I guess it is only awailable in a nightly build? Do you know a  
jira issue number I can look at? I didn't find anything related to this.
