I'm really frustrated with the searching on zope.org, too.  I end up
using altavista a lot to search zope.org.  An easy improvement would
be to have a help link that describes what one can & can't do in the
search input - stopwords, quotes, whatever.  Just becase nobody else
does this doesn't mean we shouldn't :| And it could point out what we
use to enable searching in this large community site.
