Is there a way to update a text index without downtime?

Form the documentation on managing indexes, to modify an existing index you need to drop and recreate the index. With any other index, I would just create the new index alongside the old, then delete the old index. From the documentation on text indexes though, only one text index can exist on a collection at a time.

Does this mean there’s no way to update a text index without resulting in downtime for searches using the $text operator?
