[Catalog-sig] Cheese shop: search

Can we please get the search back?  I really really hate Google search. 
  For instance, I know there's a package with "wsgi" and "xml" in the 
name (I later guess that the name is actually just wsgixml, but name 
guessing is silly).  This is what I get:


It's utterly and completely useless.  It's all stupid browse pages.

Alternately, it could be improved by putting in hints to Google not to 
index any of the browse pages.  The browse pages are really the problem. 
  But I'd prefer just putting the old search page back in.  Though Page 
Rank is not actually useful, and the packages Google does find are 
totally wrong.

Google also has references to old/hidden packages, and doesn't update 
nearly enough to be useful.  Actually, looking through all 8 pages 
wsgixml doesn't even show up.  Totally useless.  Maybe Google would 
index more properly given a sitemap.
