Hmm, dunno about that, unless you're hoping for some compression
efficiencies in the cataloging.  If you had three users which end up
with 1 megs worth of catalogs each, versus three users which each put 1
meg into a global catalog, you're still using 3 megs worth of disk
space.  Though, you mightn't want several indexing processes running all
the time, unless they really had a minimal load on the system.

No, the reason that multiple users are on the same machine may be because they work together and share access to many of the same files. Not sharing the index would be conceptually like google buildiing a duplicate copy of their database for
every user.
