Raster Index

I have a large (28Gb) raster dataset that is tilled. I have created an index polygon shapefile that I use withing MN Mapserver and it works well. I'm extremely impressed with SharpMap and am looking at moving some of my sites over. I was wondering if anyone had implemented any type of index shapefile for their raster data. I am pulling from an offsite ArcIMS server right now and it's too slow for my taste. Thanks in advance.

Redesign spatial index is a goal for v2.0. Currently, only an RTree implementation exists, but using the same foundation a QuadTree raster index could also be implemented. I'll add it as a separate work item, so it can get tracked.
