Lucene (what XTF appears to use under the covers) is remarkably fast
for searching in high transaction environments... at least high for
me (70-80 requests per second). I'm not sure what the upper bound on
this is. Indexing is slower, but happens less often for me so I
haven't paid as close attention to it.
