Pipermail isn't horrible any more, and I don't think it would be
/that/ much work to implement a simple search engine.  Simplicity is
the key here -- I'd love a basically functional search feature that
works out of the box.  It needs to be modular so that more advanced
sites can swap in a different search engine (e.g. htdig), just like
they now can do with the archiver.

I don't think we buy much by /removing/ functionality.
