Hello,

does anybody consider supporting bitmap indices?

An indexing software called FastBit was integrated to MonetDB 
(http://crd.lbl.gov/~kewu/ps/LBNL-61768.pdf)
and some benchmarks show that there were serious improvements concerning 
combined numerical and text queries (offers up to 10 times better 
performance then MonetDB without FastBit).
