That's rather high based on my users...  My largest user has 110M of indexes.
The next highest users are 54M, 52M, 43M, 38M, 32M, 30M, 27M, 23M, 22M, and
then tons of users in the teens...  So your situation doesn't seem to be
the norm...

I guess it depends on your site (users, quotas, number of folders per  
user, etc).
