This package currently has a perpetual postinstall script to keep the

This is done deliberately, because the creation of the initial
database can be very time consuming. See the release announcement:
You seem to have missed that I want the index creation to happen only
when an entirely optional package gets installed.
You're right, I did miss that. I withdraw my objection.
