But Bath specifies right truncation -- truncation value 1. We would have to use a
truncation value of 104 if we put the truncation character in the string.
If we specify a truncation value different than Bath, can we call it a Bath search?
Then (1) and (2) above would be the same index, representing two different bath
searches. (We lose the correspondence of srw indexes to Bath searches.) Is this a
good thing to do?
