How to deal with a flexible philosophy

After writing my last post about "Flexible philosophy" I had the pleasure to discuss it with Alessandro Graheli. Later on, Evgenija (I hope she does not mind being mentioned here) kindly reminded me that what I wrote about Mīmāṃsā philosophy applies also to other branches of Indian philosophy. Hence a more general problem: how shall we deal with Indian philosophy if it lacks (absit iniuria verbis) the sistematic consistency we are used to?
Is this lack itself an interesting challenge for our conservative view of (philosophical) truth as consistency?
