The index size I got with just options 1 and 3 was 1.32 Mb. Adding option
2 will probably make it even smaller. The option 3 "bitmap" is 3888 bytes
(31102 / 8)  (sorry the 8.3K was wrong!) in size. I do not store the number
of times it occurs in the verse cause it is easier getting that at run-time.

God bless you,
