I'm not sure if you're trolling or not... The python.org search is one
of its weakest attributes; on the main http://python.org/ search, it's
now been replaced by a Google site-search, but the box on the side in
http://docs.python.org/ still gives the annoyingly slow internal
search. So no, I don't go to the official site search, I use Google
(with or without site:python.org to restrict the results - most often
without).
