Maybe something is really wrong. I cannot judge that from here. Once
you have a valid index, the daemon should not take a lot of CPU.

Off/Light/Full will be a simple config. We'll also add the possibility
of choosing what fields you want indexed.

Yes, by configuring the fields you also configure which plugins to
use. Initially, we'll expose the field names in the config as opposed
to the names of the plugins.
