In fact my suggestion was a question : I would like to contribute a patch t=
add support for this way of using VLV. Is this feature extension as a doubl=
indexed array an acceptable implementation from your point of vue ? To avoi=
encountering such performance issues, I would add a new sssvlv parameter th=
would authorize by default only a single VLV search request per connection.
