I do agree that the current archive search is much, much better than
the searching before the upgrade. I would be interested in taking a
look at some open source projects with a "good" search engine. Most
projects have search engines that are true exercises in frustration
by pulling either apparently everything or next to nothing and nothing
in between. If there is a good one to look at maybe we can do some
tweaking our search engine to improve it.
