I have looked at it because of troubles with FScrawler and I love your

This is what the fs2es-indexer does not seem to do (to my understanding).
That is the reason why I am stuck with FScrawler for now.
Hopefully I am wrong and you are going to tell me that fs2es-indexer has
all the functionality of FScrawler but not the issues :-)
The other thing is that I am pushing data to Opensearch which requires
me to patch and compile FScrawler, another complexity I don't like very
