Interestingly, I know have autocomplete targetted directly against the
SFX db, and it seems to be working fine and not slowing down the SFX
server too much. I was emboldened to do this when I realized that SFX
itself now includes optional autocomplete functionality (no doubt they
got the idea from Ross), which goes directly against the SFX db.
But yeah, at present, the A-Z list functionality _I_ use goes against
the db, and I can't vouch for the fucntionality that relied on an
imported list instead. I would actually like to get that functionality
working again at some point (although if you HAVE direct db access, you
could do the local index importing directly from the db, instead of the
SFX export tab deliminted file. You might still want a local index to
add other entries to it that do not come from SFX; that's what I'd like
to do some day).
