In fact my suggestion was a question : I would like to contribute a patch to
add support for this way of using VLV. Is this feature extension as a double
indexed array an acceptable implementation from your point of vue ? To avoid
encountering such performance issues, I would add a new sssvlv parameter that
would authorize by default only a single VLV search request per connection.
I guess as long as you observe the svi_max config parameter, there's no reason
not to adopt your suggestion. Feel free to followup here with your patch for
