Just a couple of addendums (addenda?) to that-- the indices are large and will 
consume lots of disk space, more than proportional to the size of your
installed data because of links between databases.  Disk is cheap these days,

Also, SRS is appearing on Unix these days-- it's known to run on 
Ultrix, Irix, and various flavors of SunOS.  I can't say for sure that it
has actually been released for those platforms, but I didn't want it to go
unsaid that the work has been done and the availability of the product for
Unix is at the least imminant.  Conveniently, common sources are used to 
build on all platforms.
