I imagine a result set that big WOULD be cumbersome (and memory
intensive) if you loaded it all into memory at once. But do you? I might
have 10,000 hits, but I don't need to look at them all at once. I just
want a small chunk at a time to show the user. swish-e is faster at
searching and sorting than perl will be, IF you've got properties
indexed that help that sort of thing.
I return about a couple dozen properties with each result, some long (>
100 char) text strings, some short.
