Dear Oliver,
Wonderful work indeed...
I just sent your link to a specialist of ancient Greek who is currently writing a paper on digital humanities and especially on the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG, I copy his answer here, just for fun:"C'est extrêmement impressionnant... Une bonne génération plus avancé que le TLG !" 
Many thanks for sharing this !

Dear Oliver,

It is simple awful. I am sure the indologists will benefit from this, and
this tool will provide a new dimension to the indology research.

It will be great if we can make all the electronically available Sanskrit
texts indexed this way!

with warm regards,
