So I've finally taken a quick look at this. I'm not quite ready to take
it for 4.12 at this point, but I guess I'm running out of reasons to
block it in general..:)

One question, though: is there a reason for the split between the sphinx
extension and the Perl script that does the work? Could it all happen in
the extension directly instead? It seems like a lot of moving parts.
