Having a local search seems worthwhile ... Since the index files
aren't guaranteed to be cross-platform, that would mean building
them on the mirrors, which looks like it can be done with an
rsynced html tree and swish.conf. Then if
isn't hardcoded, the mirror could just install the search
templates ...
