This revision is now accepted and ready to land.

Nice! Thanks for making the refactoring and adding tests! I think this is good to go now.

I'm not very familiar with code outside of the index library (Driver, Basic etc), but the changes seem reasonable to me. Feel free to get another pair of eyes for them ;)

Add a FIXME that this is not implemented yet.

Currently, `createUnitIndexingAction` and `createIndexDataRecordingAction` are mostly identical except for the code that implements `IndexUnitDataConsumer ` and creates the factory.

Sounds good. Thanks for the explanation!
