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.
