OK, now that it's turned on, I have a few stats. I should probably
start running the betas on for some better testing, but in
the meantime, some entirely unscientific results (with
wordlist_compression on).

htdig-3.1.5 time: 5.245s total DB size 1760K
htdig-3.2 CVS time: 16.537s total DB size 1036K

This is for 200 documents, so it's not a good comparison, but even at
this point it's slower. I'm going to do a run with profiling tonight.
