Just for historical purposes, our Magi product had the guts of the
Altavista search engine and all the Stellent content filters and could
text index and relevancy sort 335 different types of client side content
and push the metadata in privacy protected (both personal and 
shared access and security) to a centralized search meta index bootstrapping
the whole Web, Apache/Tomcat, and two-way, cross firewall HTTP
tunneling.   It was the best of the Web, best of Web searching, and
best of P2P all wrapped up into one.
