Subject: [htdig] db sizes

I have got htdig running perfectly now. It is updating the index without
re-reading all files:) The only problem I am having is that the db
files are very large. These are the db files for ~600M of archived html
search_algorithm: exact:1 synonyms:0.5 endings:0.1
to just exact:1 make the db any smaller?
I am also thinking the db are large not because of htdig but because of
the email. I had used postal, a smtp benchmark to send the 600M of
mail. Postal does not send english words but random ASCII garbage,
Could this be why the db files are so large?
Attached is a sample html email generated from postal.
