I can't imagine that this would be very hard to implement at all.  It should
be just plain simple to do in the front-end.  That would depend on the
front-end being modified, of course.  However, it would probably be more
efficient to write a custom search routine in C.

Anyway, give me some more details.  Maybe I could help a bit.  For instance,
what script are you using currently?  (Be forewarned, PERL makes my head
hurt ;-)
