No, I didn't - you did! :) I only came up with the proposal, after 
discussing it with Doug.

Not me. I shied away from the patch because I didn't like the 2 RPC-s 
per search. I still don't like it, but I may have to accept it as an 
interim solution.

That was my question, really - for release 1.0:

* are we better off not having this patch, and just be careful how we 
split indexes among searchers as we do it now, or

* should we apply the patch, pay the price of 2 RPCs, and wait for the 
patch implementing the approach that I proposed?

* or make an effort to implement the new approach, and postpone the 
release until this is ready.

No code yet, just thinking aloud. But it's not really anything 
complicated, chunks of code already exist that implement almost all 
building blocks of the algorithm.
