To add to the discussion.  Step ships data files and later indexes as part
of the installation of software plus automatically after installation of
any module.

We considered shipping indexes but decided against it. This is because
indexes can become corrupt quite easily and can be incompatible for no
obvious reasons.

We also want to be able to update data later with a lot of people having
bad Internet connections.  Since we're using Lucene as our data store as
well as our indexing engine we need to ship most of the text data anyway.

So functionality needs to be there anyway to manage indexing.

As DM says it can often be done in background very fast.
