Improve the performance of the Finder/Smart Search component in Joomla.

Joomla has a built in, index-based search, the Finder/Smart Search component. This component is very powerfull, but has a huge performance issue. I am providing you here with a plugin that changes the implementation of this search and greatly improves the performance. To use this, simply install the plugin and enable it. Afterwards, the plugin works transparently and simply augments the Smart Search component where necessary. After the installation, you have to rebuild the index of Smart Search.

Please be aware that the plugin is currently beta code. If you have any problems, disable the plugin and rebuild the index and all changes should be reversed.
