If you can provide one, please do :-)
Right now, all we have is:
postgres postgres
postgresql postgres
pgsql postgres
pg postgres
postgre postgres

We already do this - we set them to class "A" with setweight().

This we don't do -w e store the From field, but we don't index it. And
we don't do anything with the To field.

So that's certainly something we could add.

Any patches are definitely welcome - you can find the search system at
https://pgweb.postgresql.org/browser/trunk/portal/tools/search :-)

(for the archives, you're probably most interested in
classes/ArchiveIndexer.class.php and the sql/functions.sql file)
