XF 2.0 Any plans to support sphinxsearch?

#1
Do you have any plans to support Sphinx?

I would use Elasticsearch, but it's extremely bloatware. Sphinx only requires 5 packages to be installed on the server to run, Elasticsearch requires 91 packages. There is no way I could ever install something with that many dependencies, especially when trying save as much resources as possible for anything else running on the server.

I believe @digitalpoint has an add-on for Sphinx support in XF1, not sure if he is planning on moving that to XF2 as I believe it was built before XF's ElasticSearch add-on was made available
