A complication with this for Phobos is templates. Given a signature like:

T to(T, S)(S s);

What would match that? The search engine perhaps could understand templates
and their constraints, but I'd still expect a lot of false positives or false

If it is just input and output, I'd expect

int indexOf(string);

To get a higher score than the to!() template, too but that isn't accurate
for what the user intended.

It'd be cool if it worked, but I think it would take a lot of time to code
up something that works well. What I have in mind here is a list of weighted
keywords - an easy implementation that will hopefully give good enough
results after the initial database population.
