    While we're at it, would it be possible to store the index in the existing database instead of SQLite ? Wouldn't that allow for index syncing reliability (I hear there are file corruption problems ) ? And reducing the number of processes (no index queue) ?

TNTSearch is a powerful engine that can do a lot of stuff - even classification if that's something you might need. For more info, you can check out the GitHub documentation.
