Now there's an understatement....  Google is so insanely superior to
any "local" search system I've ever used that I don't even bother with
them anymore, it's a lot more useful to just to type the equivalent
"TERM site:FOO" in the google search box.

Indexing speed seems to be less and less of an issue these days --
google seems to pick up stuff _really_ fast lately (I don't know how
they do this, but posts I make to mailing lists usually show up in
google searches the same day).

[As for privacy concerns...  on a publicly-accessible site?  wtf?]
