Reindexing is *not* recursive, although it obviously should be. In
fact, I have some other idea on the topic. The basic thing would be to
provide a ResourceSet which would contain, independantly of how the
hierarchy is a set of resource, that you could configure in a single
click. For the time being, we will have to live with the hierarchic
but not recursive piece of it .... unless you hack it ;_)

Yep I do agree, but there is no reasons that this should only be
dictated by the hierarchy. This usage of the hierarchy as defining a
set of resources is too restrictive to me ;-)
