The searching leaves a lot to be desired. Being restricted to DFSG
software makes it much more difficult to implement this. There has
been a lot of development work on swish++ recently and once it
can be restricted to search only on META tags, I will switch to using
it (it may already support it, but it doesn't work as shown in the
man page). The searching will be greatly improved in the process.
