Site search is a nice idea, but I'm not sure it would be completely
helpful here.  My concern with it is if people come to Crosswire and
start searching for Bible software, and they don't find what they are
looking for because there is only brief blurbs for the various
software.  If you provide a search people will tend to assume it's not
there if they can't find it, and would probably expect it to search
bibletime.info, gnomesword.sf.net, www.bpbible.com, possibly Karl's
module repository, ... - anything they perceive as related to
Crosswire or the Sword project, even if technically it is not part of
the Crosswire website (I think you can do something like this with
Google site search if you want to).
