Ichabod was engineered to seek out alternate states and for other objects
in memory that were intractable with.  It was basically a headless flash
player that acted like a human, pushing every button, tab, etc. It then
stripped out anything that was textual.  A tab would then instantiate
itself and the data (text) would be available.

The problem with it was that despite a fairly good size engineering
effort, the search vendors basically didn't want it.  If you really want
to validate this, perhaps ask the search vendors themselves and ask them
what they would use.  Opinions of what they *might* want are pointless if
they don't use it.
