I wouldn't say it's not useful; just depends on your purpose.  The  
similar Bio::Index::Blast was very useful when I ran MCL clustering  
and needed to pull out a single BLAST report (out of a very large  
concatenated BLAST file) via the query ID.

Saying that, it would be nice to come up with a way to index the hit  
ID but that may require reconfiguring how parsed IDs are stored.
