    Dramatic post ;) It'd be interesting to see concrete benchmarks, on some public data.

    Btw I didn't find the Schulz & Mihov paper that cryptic. You can check its implementation in Python [0], pretty straightforward IMO.

    But I should note that in the end, we chose a simpler approach: the FastSS index. It bypasses constructing / intersecting Levenshtein automata altogether, and is super fast [1].
