Yeah, I knew about that one... :-/  Hey, nothing can be perfect! ;-) I
agree 100% with you on that, but it will take time to shift to something
half as good as Google... perhaps, when grid and distributed projects
grow and XML finally hits the Net, it will be a clever idea to implement
a daemon that has a little DB in each computer about the public contents
of the website and that syncs with a centralised cluster of servers that
can store an insane amount of people's syncs... just worried about the
security implications, though..

Anyways, let's hope free (as in freedom+beer) search engine projects
grow up in strenght and quality :)
