Max (reasonable) size of index?

	Anyone have any guesses as to the maximum size of a SWISH index? I've
seen it used on sites of 5000+ pages (the old version); I'm just wondering
how far that could go. Call me a bit afeared of beginning a large index and
then watching it choke a few months down the line ;)

	...predicting that someone will ask the speed of the server, I would
say that a PPro 200 would be typical. Seeing that the indexes don't become
that large, I could probably fit the entire index in RAM.
