Ah, now I understand perfectly.  Aren't there personal search engines 
of some kind that could do something like this for you already?  Or
are those intended to work only on Intranet content, not on content
that is out on the web itself?

I would imagine there are search engine programs you can install, then
feed them a web site, then use it to do your own searches, which would
accomplish what you want.

If not, then I agree it's a useful _and_ novel idea! :)
