Meilisearch has acceptable results, and attempts to fix typos as 
well. Seems lightweight as well.

I kind of liked the results postgres was giving me as well, but I 
doubt it does anything about typos. And you have to be a bit 
specific. And of course dub doesn't use postgres >x3

I wanted to add Elasticsearch/Opensearch into the test as well, 
but couldn't be bothered since it seemed redundant.

In other words, if anyone's gonna do this, a dedicated search 
engine would likely be the way forward?
