This is correct, but also look at gopherglobbing, which is supported by
Bucktooth 0.2. See

If you were recently searching, there was some database problem I was
trying to fix which should be rectified (just slower while a table rebuilds).

In any case, all a mole does is spit out RFC-1436 compliant lines to the
client (Bucktooth just exec's right into it), so you can have it send whatever
you want. Bucktooth gives it some extra environment variables documented
