Mifluz is the standalone version of the ht://Dig 3.2 word database. It was
spun off as a separate project from ht://Dig by Loic Dacharay, who did a
lot of work on improving the base libraries and adding word database
compression to the package.
At the moment, Loic seems to have moved on to other things--I haven't
heard from him in around a year. And development on mifluz, unfortunately
seems to have stopped, though it's at a fairly mature level.
(Unfortunately, before Loic disappeared, he promised to help us resync the
parallel development on the htdig/mifluz code.)
