        Actually, all you need to do is do the 'htdig' in multiple passes. Then
htmerge them together.

        The 'htdig' process consumes more and more memory as it runs. This might be
due to memory leaks, or it might be legimitately due to it keeping track of
all the URLs it has to process. I tried htdigging 250,000 documents and hit
about 180Mb.
