One way would be to use the request generator in Cocoon ( 
). This gives you the request headers as an XML stream.

Problem is you are only allowed one generator in each pipeline so you 
would have to do the search using the XSL Document() function.

This doesn't seem very nice since we are moving some of the logic into 
an XSL sheet. I'm sure Cocoon must provide another way.

But google desktop does much more than search the Forrest site right?

I can image this being useful in some fairly specialised situations, but 
if you are after being able to search Forrest docs then you are probably 
right in that it presents no benefit of lucene.
