Can I add path include patterns to a repository without reindexing?

In FishEye, we have a particularly large repository that we want to trim down a bit for performance reasons by using include paths (to only index trunk/ and branches/some-patterns-*).

It looks like FishEye wants to reindex the repository in order to put this into effect. Is there any way around a re-index? The repository is huge and usually takes around a week to reindex and I'd like to avoid the downtime if I can.

If I choose not to re-index, what will happen? Will it only skip non-matching paths for new updates? Will it restrospectively prune the existing index?

If you make changes to the Include and/or Exclude paths in the Allow screen, and Save them, you get a dialog:

A reindex required
A configuration change was made which requires a reindex of
the repository.
[Ignore] [Perform now]

You can select Ignore, the repository won't be re-indexed then.
The changed Include/Exclude paths will then not be applied to the already indexed data.
You will have to restart the repository for the changes to be picked up (or restart the application).
