once, i went through _almost_ the entire process of getting some
packages done, with help from andreas rottman.

it's pretty sophisticated, it doesn't quite do exactly what i need
[hence the patch], it uses mifluz, as a plugin, for indexing rather
than doing the indexing itself.
you can write your _own_ indexing plugins (hence my continued
interest) which i am using to record adds, modifications and
deletions of web pages.
if, however, i come across more than one restriction that i cannot
work with / code around, i intend to give up on this package and look
at some others.
