[Mailman-Users] Integrating htdig

I've spent a lot of time over the last few days trying to make htdig work 
with my installation of mailman 2.1.5. I installed the patches and rebuilt 
everything, set up the configuration, rebuilt my archives using arch and 
everything seemed (mostly) fine until I tried to index the archive and do a 

The indexing problem I have is an htdig issue (segmentation fault while 
running htfuzzy) so I won't go into that.

Even with that problem during the index process, I can use htsearch from 
the command line and it gives me a valid search response. When I try to do 
a search from the form on the archive index page, it bombs badly and just 
gives me a useless error message (something like Search failed 12).

I noticed in the documentation that the 3.2 version of htdig is not 
supported by the patches for using htdig with mailman. I've tried rolling 
it back to version 3.1.6 but am having difficulty getting it to install so 
it looks like for the moment I am stuck with 3.2

Is there any way to get this patch to work with the 3.2 version of htdig? 
Is there any plan to support this in the future?
