Everyone has different needs. Some people would rather not take their
server down to accomplish a reindex, and a 100M entry directory will
take a long time to reindex, regardless. The tradeoff of course is how
long it will take before you can get any benefit of the new index in
search operations. If you have other servers that can take up the slack,
then of course doing the indexing offline will be faster.
