The index updater deletes /quick when it starts and writes it back it  
is done.  Building the entire index can take several minutes.

Now the indexer builds everything in /tmp/ and moves it into place  
when done.

Poor workers blame their tools. Good workers build better tools. The
best workers get their tools to do the work for them. -- Syndicate Wars
