missing wishlist item: improved search(!)

Probably the biggest wishlist item I'd like to see is an improved search facility. The current version is very slow, does no highlighting, and appears to sort by date rather than relevance, which makes it less than useful. On the other hand, it has access to metadata ("Security page", "comment") not easily available to or usable by mainline search engines. I'd love to see some improvements here.
On the other hand, I've read through all the other comments so far, and aside from some "needs better navigation" comments, no one else seems to care about the search facility. So maybe it's just me...
