Primitive, but I coded up a basic keyword search, with the database
populated from names of all the functions pulled out of the phobos docs
on my local box. They are a couple versions behind - I'll update at the
next dmd. It should be good enough for now anyway.


You can punch in some keywords, and it dumps a sorted list at you. The
matches are based on function name, module name, then a list of tags
(currently empty - I'll probably need help filling them out!). Exact matches
give higher scores, but it dumps just about anything that remotely seems

Once I'm happy with it, I'll merge its functionality right into the homepage.

Should be good now. Once I merge the new search function in to the homepage,
I'm hoping to give /something/ helpful on every search, so this shouldn't
happen anymore.
