Certainly mifluz is up to the task. You may have read already
mifluz is designed to index a large (+10 million) number of words.
Mifluz relies on a modified version of Berkeley DB B+Tree's
(we added on compression) for storing its index. The structure
employed makes updates very fast. There is some work going on
to improve the structure.
I would be interested if the persons that designed namazu's
index structure, critisized the mifluz structure. As the
structure is the key to fast updates and query performance.
