I have a little under 100,000 messages archived at Kanga.Nu, and
just over 700,000 archived on my system at home.

MnoGoSearch used an SQL DB for its indexes rather than a custom DM
implementation. The DB size is directly and significantly affected
by your configuration; minimum token length to index, use of
stopwords, use of sing/emulti/crc mode (or crc-multi etc), and so
forth. Depending on your config the change in index size can easily
be more than an order of magnitude.

The best I can comment is that I need to do some postgresql tuning
on my installation, and that I haven't done it yet.
