Yeah, but it's still a Generation 1 search engine.

I don't need anymore junk on my computer when Google does the job just fine.

Well thanks. So suggesting a new type of search engine is a stupid thing?

All current search engines are limited in one very crucial way. Why would it 
be foolish for me to hold such an opinion? Why would it be foolish to spend 
spare time working on a solution? So what if it never comes to anything.

How many things are there in xml that are this way anyway. Crickey... ok so no 
body is allowed to do anything that has even the slightest chance to move 
things forward.. what a miserable place you live in.
