They exist only in the pipeline internal to Glimpse.  They're never needed
again and an HTML page only needs to be stripped as it is indexed.

That would be a waste of space for Wilma.  Because of the peculiar way
Glimpse works, when you actually do the searching it is just fine to let it
have the HTML file.

Wilma uses incremental mode, which works rather quickly.  This restricts
you to the Glimpse versions where this works, though.
