Uh, the IRC logs... Do people really think making those *searchable* would be useful?

I think they'd be *extremely* noisy and hard to interpret without a person really just sequentially
reading them.  Lots of people talking at the same time, multiple topics, lots of very short
intertwined messages that always need a lot of context, aren't threadable, etc.


Archiving the logs feels like it would be useful, but realistically speaking, they would be
pretty big and who has the time to read them after the fact?  You guys all read the recent
issue of The Economist, right? ;)
