I'll have a play with these.

I not so convinced on this. There's relatively little content on this site
that we want to search, and people might expect that it would search inside
the docs as well. If we want a search box, I would use something like
Google's custom search engine, so that it covered the docs and the wiki. But
perhaps we should just let people go to a search engine themselves.
Thoughts, anyone?

Thanks for all the feedback everyone's sending,
