Public bug reported:

While trying to dig through the archives of multiple lists belonging to
LOPSA, I realized that the archive interface might be made more useful
if it had a set of indexes available.

I think three really.....

1) A simple subject line index from a given moment in time forward and
not simply doing it on a monthly basis. Take the
"[Thread][Subject][Author]" options that are given for each month
archived and make them either yearly or just "forever".

My search for a specific conversation is:
 + Click on the "[Subject]" link for January.
 + scroll down the list looking for something that might be waht I want.
 + Hit back key, go to february and repeat. Over and over and over and over.
 + Repeat this whole process for the past three years.

2) Anyone remember the old "permuted index" in the old AT&T SysV manuals?
Doing this on just the subject lines would make searching *MUCH* easier.

3) Lastly, using the more current view of this sort of thing, a 'keyword
cloud' might make it more accessible too.

Thanks for everyone's time and effort!
