Hi Mattias,

thanks for your detailed answer. IMHO your explanation should be added
to the wiki.

As a follow up question, why isn't it possible to index relationships.
Since they also might contain properties, wouldn't it be better that the
IndexService uses the common shared interface PropertyContainer instead
of Node? What is the reason for this design decision?
