Looks like you could try approaching it it using XML to store a meta-
description of the docs, and simply link to them.

The best & most appropriate use of both worlds :-) (IMO)

The meta-index can be as minimal as you like, you could probably auto-generate 
it already if you have an existing index in almost any format!

A full-text search may have to be implimented another way though...

Gosh I love it when things actually start to make sense...
