I guess planning ahead is something we can do. We usually have a pretty 
good idea of how large our indexes are going to be (number of documents 
is one of the things we base our license pricing on). I still feel like 
shard management could be made easier. I'll see if I can have a look at 
JIRA and try to pitch in.

Thanks a lot for the input, especially Shawn & Erick!
